We adapted and piloted the Community Dialogue Approach (CDA) for addressing antibiotic resistance in Bangladesh. We set out to explore whether the CDA can be embedded into the existing health system and community infrastructure of Bangladesh. We did so by conducting a systematic review and an exploratory mixed methods study, and undertaking a rigorous process of intervention development in collaboration with policy and community stakeholders. We piloted the CDA in the catchment areas of five Community Clinics (which provide primary healthcare to around 30,000 people in total) and assessed its feasibility and acceptability to a range of stakeholders.
