Abstract Non-academic partners can be vital in successful public engagement activities on antimicrobial resistance. With collaboration between academic and non-academic partners, we developed and launched an open-access web-based application, the ‘antibiotic footprint calculator’, in both Thai and English. The application focused on a good user experience, addressing antibiotic overuse and its impact, and encouraging immediate action. The application was unveiled in joint public engagement activities. From 1 Nov 2021 to 31 July 2022 (9 month period), 2554 players estimated their personal antibiotic footprint by using the application.
