Diagnoses of Hospitalized Children on Antimicrobials in India

CDDEP researchers conducted four point prevalence surveys in six hospitals in India between 2016 and 2017. Of the 602 children included in the study, 61.5 percent were prescribed at least one antimicrobial. Lower respiratory tract infections accounted for the biggest proportion of antimicrobial prescriptions, followed by sepsis.
