Antibiotic resistance and antibiotics inappropriate use is the greatest public health challenges of our time, as per the international benchmark almost at least 30% of the antibiotics prescriptions are unnecessary, and the remaining 70 % are likely necessary. AHS’s best practice is the initiative to implement an effective Antimicrobial Stewardship Program as the first of its kind in the UAE to improve antibiotic prescribing with a target of 50 % reduction of total inappropriate antibiotics prescription and reduce the unnecessarily prescribed antibiotics for viral infections to Zero % in 48 weeks.
