Abstract

To evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practice of antibiotic use by mothers with children under 5 years old in Nam Dinh, a cross-sectional descriptive study of 1334 mothers with children under the age of five was conducted in 2020. 1264 (94.7%) mothers knew antibiotics. Good knowledge, pleasant attitude, and good practice are all rated at 54.3 percent, 54.1 percent, and 49.2 percent, respectively. Antibiotic misuse is prevalent among youngsters (50.8 percent). Mothers from age group 26 years to over 30 years; reached undergraduate or post-graduate education; worked as an Officer/civil servant; had a family income of more than 10 million dongs per month and attended a course on antibiotics for children are 5 factors which have a significant impact on better knowledge, attitudes, and practices, according to multivariate regression analysis. Antibiotic knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors among mothers continue to be insufficient. More antibiotics for children’s courses should be established for moms with young children and the general public.
