Antibiotic Stewardship in Pediatrics

Funding Agency:
Pfizer Inc.

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement, or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies. Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an internal Pfizer review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the practice gaps as outlined in the specific RFP.

In resource limited settings, antibiotic use in children is common with evidence suggesting both overuse in many settings and underuse in others. Further, differences in usage based on gender and/or class suggest inequities that need to be addressed. Interventions are needed to ensure good stewardship practices are applied to children, one of the most vulnerable populations.
