Better use of Antibiotics
Description of call
"Better use of Antibiotics"

The objectives of the prize are to:
- Reduce the unnecessary use of antibiotics in case of viral upper respiratory tract infections; - Reduce costs and side effects linked to the use of antibiotics;
- Delay the emergence of antibiotic resistant organisms;
- Enable health-care providers to take early decisions in the management of upper respiratory tract infections (rapid initiation and cessation of treatment) and to facilitate the health care provider’s decision not to prescribe antibiotics in case of viral infections and to facilitate patients’ acceptance of not taking antibiotics for viral infections;
- Tackle the widespread and significant health care issue of respiratory infections; an ageing population, antibiotic resistance and increasing health care costs make this a particularly challenging problem.
