Napper competition win extends AMR (Anti-Microbial Resistance) work to Pharmacies in Rwanda
09 September 2019
Following on from the 2018 Napper competition win (see June 2018 new report), the University of Reading and Loughborough extended the work to support AMR awareness in Rwanda.
The overall work has been completed as part of an AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) funded project “Information Design and Architecture in Persuasive Pharmacy Space: combating AMR (IDAPPS).“
The design concept employs two characters, the “good” bug and the “super” bug, that create informative narratives within the pharmacy space. These characters were inspired from the biological understanding of bacteria, their interaction with space and humans, and the evolution of drug resistant bacteria.
The installation and information cards have been provided to pharmacists in Rwanda to increase awareness amongst the pharmacy users.
