Launch of Antimicrobial Stewardship Prescribing App (2)

20 November, 2019

This is very exciting, Victoria. I know overuse of antibiotics is quite pervasive in Egypt, where I live, and many other countries across the globe. I am wondering: has there been any effort to get country governments to train pharmacists on the app, or offer the app in multiple languages? Or are there plans for such dissemination efforts in the future?
