Antimicrobial stewardship practices help to reduce the spread of Antimicrobial Resistance AMR by applying greater oversight of appropriate antibiotic usage to enable more rational and judicious prescribing practices.
Pfizer invests in active stewardship to support education efforts for both healthcare professionals and the general public. This includes providing an independent grant program which helps hospital/healthcare systems and national governmental organizations around the world to establish and promote stewardship efforts, as well sponsoring one of the world’s largest AMR surveillance programs.
