Campaign Partners


The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Division of Patient Safety and Quality is collaborating with a workgroup on campaign planning and implementation. Members include:

In addition, we continue to coordinate closely with the Illinois Quality Improvement Organization, Telligen, and other members of its Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) Prevention Advisory Council.

Making a difference in fighting antibiotic resistance in Illinois will require commitment and collaboration across professional associations, healthcare systems, healthcare plans, local health departments, pharmacies, schools, consumer groups, business associations, and other stakeholders.  Interested groups can partner with us to promote appropriate antibiotic use, for example:

  • Share information about the campaign
  • Participate in  the campaign workgroup
  • Provide resource support e.g., printing, marketing, filming, continuing education units
  • Educate the public or deliver presentations on appropriate antibiotic use to other groups
  • Participate in Get Smart about Antibiotics Week, a national observance held each November.
Partners will be recognized on the IDPH website.
