How can we get the power as citizens and contribute to the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR)?
Through a series of workshops, the project MAKEAWARE! aims to involve people, scientists, designers-artists, doctors and technologists to explore together the science and data on AMR, and to collaboratively create an open repository of resources about the so-called “silent pandemic”.
Do we know how an antibiotic works? Do we know how to consume them properly? Do we collect data about symptoms during a bacterial infection? How did we manage the communication with the doctors during therapy? Are we aware of what AMR is?
By joining the workshops or filling the form, we can help raise awareness about AMR through shared resources and the MAKEAWARE! map, an experimental visualization of data and stories about antibiotics prescription and consumption and AM resistance in Switzerland.
The GET THE POWER form aims to gather information and stories about antibiotic consumption, antimicrobial resistance, and urinary tract infection experiences. The data collected from the GET THE POWER form is visualised on the Map to represent the level of awareness and engagement of workshop participants and people contributing through the online repository. Data and stories will be coded and re-organized into datasets and other visual formats that are available for open access.
