Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance and its cost of use increases as a result of excessive and improper antibiotic usage which has become a global health issue. As a result, several strategies aiming at improving antibiotic therapy have developed up to this point. The goal of this study is to assess rational antibiotic usage and the influence of new limitation policies, as well as their reinforcement by infectious disease specialists, on hospital-wide antibiotic use. Individual difficulties stemming from unreasonable drug usage can have a long-term harmful impact on public well-being. Antibiotics are the most commonly used inappropriately, and thus disrupts the long-term sustainability of health gains in terms of both cost and productivity. There are currently worldwide and regional guidelines for establishing a government structure dedicated to monitoring and improving medicine use, as well as conducting a national situation analysis in order to design a strategy. In response to country requests, the WHO Regional Office for Southeast Asia is currently conducting national situational studies to assist countries in developing coordinated action plans. After the study, it was concluded that antibiotic use was reduced and sensible antibiotic prescriptions were increased in hospitals as a result of the restricted policy.

Keywords: Antibiotics, Rational use, Irrational use, Infectious Disease, Cost effectiveness.
