DSPRUD has been working in the area of patient/public education focusing on addressing beliefs and misconceptions about medication use particularly antimicrobial treatment, self-medication and poor adherence.
We conducts campaigns to increase awareness about medicines use particularly antibiotics in community. The advocacy campaign consists of face to face education, small group discussions, exhibitions, magic shows and games, folk theatre, film/slide/video shows, distribution of IEC material like posters, leaflets/flyers, stickers etc. on safe and rational use of drugs. Public education advocacy programme supported by CORDAID in U.P. and Bihar was a huge success as assessed by the impact of knowledge, attitude and practices regarding use of medicines in general public.
School Health module is another unique programme of the Society. The programme focused on raising awareness among students on the misuse of antibiotics taking leads from stop firecrackers campaign. Also undertook project on "Promoting Awareness Amongst School Children on Rational Use of Medicines" with support from World Health Organization. The School Health module was developed and tested in 10 schools and covering 1500 children in Delhi. The results were very encouraging as students and the schools played a pivotal role in promoting the campaign.
