Public Awareness on Antimicrobial Resistance: Results of a Community-Based Survey and Implications for Policy

  07 May 2022

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.
