Protecting Indonesia from the Threat of Antibiotic Resistance (PINTAR)

An international research collaboration to improve the use of antibiotics in Indonesia

This three-year research project aims to improve the appropriate dispensing of antibiotics by private drug sellers and ultimately reduce the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The study began in 2018 by a multidisciplinary team from five universities in Indonesia, Australia and the United Kingdom. Since March 2020 the team has been working on a sub-study to support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
