Public Awareness on Antimicrobial Resistance: Results of a Community-Based Survey and Implications for Policy
This report seeks to create an understanding of knowledge, attitudes, behaviours, and practices (KABP) related to antibiotics use and antimicrobial resistance at the population-level. KABP studies are used by social scientists to examine highly nuanced issues associated with a problem in a group or community. Their aim is to identify the most common gaps in people’s knowledge and practices, in order to guide policymaking. This report uses a survey, undertaken to assess the awareness levels of individuals visiting a science museum in Kolkata, a metropolitan city in the state of West Bengal. There is evidence that AMR is a significant problem in the city, which would have motivated the Science Museum to host a “superbug exhibition” to educate the public about AMR.
