Online meeting
AMR Insights

Date and time: 27 January, 16:00 – 18:00 CET

Behavioral change in prescribing antibiotics through gamified programs

The online summit will consult selected international stakeholders to bring about behavioral change in antibiotic prescribing through the use of gamified programs. The starting point of the summit consultation is ‘Focus on Prescription’. This program is considered by WHO to be “at the forefront of modern approaches to behavioral change”.

Towards a cooperation to make the program accessible at no costs
The summit consultation will lead to the establishment of an international, public-private cooperation that will move on ‘Focus on Prescription’. The program will be further developed and made available at no costs to the 16 million antibiotic prescribing professionals worldwide. The newly established cooperation is to be operational by April 2022. The program will be introduced by the end of 2022. Upon proven success, the cooperation will also focus on the development and implementation of gamified programs for other AMR-related areas. 

Global AMR stakeholders welcome
The online summit consultation welcomes Board members, CEOs and Executives of the global AMR stakeholders. The summit consultation is by personal invitation only. There are no costs involved in attending the summit consultation.
