Malaria Consortium shares new film on tackling antimicrobial resistance in Bangladesh
Malaria Consortium premiered its new film last week on tackling antimicrobial resistance in Bangladesh.
The film focuses on the use of the Community Dialogue Approach in order to engage rural communities around this issue. In Bangladesh, the Approach is being used to create a supportive environment for people to adopt recommended behaviours – particularly with regard to their use of antibiotics when they are sick.
In this case, Community Dialogue was used to encourage people to visit a qualified healthcare provider when they are sick, in order to get a professional diagnosis and a prescription when necessary, and then to complete the course of antibiotics as prescribed.
