Raising awareness of antibiotic resistance in Rwanda through design
In 2018 the CPA partnered with the University of Reading and the Rwanda Community Pharmacists Union to produce educational resources and tools for community pharmacists to help educate the public on AMR. These resources are now available for download. Below is a summary of the project.
Beat Bad Microbes in Rwanda is a University of Reading’s Global Challenges Research Fund project that introduced design thinking to communicate information about antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antibiotic misuse, and to influence behaviour change. The cross- disciplinary collaboration project team includes academics from the Universities of Reading (UoR) and Rwanda (UoRw), Design Science (DS), the Rwandan Community Pharmacists’ Union (RCPU) and the Commonwealth Pharmacy Association (CPA).
