The main activity of the project will be social mass-media campaign aimed at general public. The aim or the activity is to increase awareness of general public about the risks or inappropriate use of antibiotics and build sustainable approach in the society to the wise use of antibiotics. The second part or the project is oriented towards health care providers. Guidelines for health care providers, mainly general practitioners and paediatricians, on rational use of antibiotics will be developed and introduced to health care providers at seminars across the Czech Republic. Based on data obtained front health insurance companies, the selected health care providers will be also offered feedback with regard to the use of antibiotics in their own practices. An increased level of awareness on importance of rational use of antibiotics and promotion of tailored treatment recommendations should contribute to the stop of increasing trends of antibiotic consumption in the Czech Republic.
