About Book

In light of established principles and strategies for appropriate use of antimicrobial medicines, this paper examines studies on antimicrobial use trends across several countries in the Asia and Pacific regions. The author draws upon the outcomes of these studies, which look at prescribing patterns and consumer perceptions regarding antimicrobials, to identify key factors that have an impact on antimicrobial use. It is found that proper antimicrobial use - which is integral to controlling the development of antimicrobial resistance - hinges crucially on, among other factors, education of prescribers and consumers, up-to-date standard treatment guidelines, and a strong regulatory framework governing the prescribing, sale and distribution of antimicrobials.
