This project aimed to enhance understanding of key social, economic, cultural, systemic and other influences on antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance in rural China by investigating and quantifying current use of both prescribed and non-prescribed antibiotics and other forms of care to treat common respiratory and urinary tract infections in rural parts of Anhui Province. The dataset includes quantitative and qualitative information on current testing practices, clinical diagnoses and antibiotic treatment procedures at lower levels of the health system (village clinics and township health centres) collected through observed consultations and patient exit interviews; over-the-counter purchasing of antibiotics from retail pharmacies collected through direct observations, exit surveys, pharmacy worker interviews and customer interviews; microbiological test results from recruited patients including bacteria detected and antibiotic resistance; and review of the accuracy of electronic records matched to observed patient consultations.
