ADVANCE infectious diseases pharmacy and LEAD antimicrobial stewardship in order
to OPTIMIZE the care of patients

The AMR Challenge

The Antimicrobial Resistance Challenge is a global initiative to fight the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance. Through this initiative organizations can make formal commitments to combat antimicrobial resistance through various activities or areas (tracking and data, infection prevention and control, antibiotic use, environment and sanitation, vaccines/therapeutics/diagnostics).

The Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP) has committed to the U.S. Government's Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Challenge to promote appropriate antibiotic use:

The Society of Infectious Disease Pharmacists (SIDP) will promote the appropriate use of antibiotics among its more than 1,500 members by expanding global stewardship provider education in acute and long-term care, providing antibiotic stewardship certificate programs, securing commitments from U.S. acute care hospitals to adopt the stewardship practices outlined in pharmacy action posters, a collaboration between CDC, SIDP, and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and sponsoring an Antibiotic Take Back Day campaign in partnership with community pharmacists
