Antibiotic resistance will kill MILLIONS of individuals by 2050

The launch of the antibiotics awareness program at King Fahd Hospital in Jeddah

CSE, which undertook an assessment of India's National Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (2017-21), called for stringent limits on antibiotic discharge in pharmaceutical effluents as well ad regulations and measures to ensure appropriate farm waste management, drug take-back and disposal.

"In response to the need for clarity and coordination, the National Policy on AMR has established a National Antimicrobial Stewardship Inter-Agency Committee and a multi-sectoral AMR Secretariat hosted at the Ministry of Health to coordinate the AMR agenda", he said.

Wirral cabinet member for Adult Care and Health Cllr Christine Jones said: "Many people assume that antibiotics are a "cure all", but they're not".

The US does not enforce the rule and antibiotic use in farm animals there is six times higher than in the United Kingdom, and 13 times higher among cattle.

Lead researcher Professor Tjeerd van Staa said: 'In order to tackle antibiotic resistance, it's crucial that we gain a better understanding of the key factors that influence antibiotic prescribing and that identify patients at higher risk of developing infection related complications'.

Dr Abdullatif al-Khal, HMC's deputy chief medical officer and head of Infectious Diseases, said antibiotics are medicines that are used to treat or prevent infections, but he warned against their misuse. Never take antibiotics prescribed for someone else and do not reuse any of the old prescriptions.

"Even a simple thing like treating a urinary tract infection - now we're having to rely on an alternate line of treatment because we're running out of antibiotic options", Kim said.

Right now, health professionals across the country are talking with their patients about the importance of antibiotic use as part of World Antibiotic Awareness Week (Nov. 12-18).

And resistance which develops in animals can pass through meat and dairy products into humans, making the medicines less effective for us, too. Among these are the One Health Approach and the Manual of Procedures for Implementing AMS Programs in Hospitals.

If not contained, AMR could threaten the gains achieved with the discovery of antibiotics in the 20th century and the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals, in particular, attaining good health and well being, doctors said. But there is AMS, which could be the solution to this. Dr. Johns says to ask your doctor what signs to watch for.

Robles added that prevention was always important, saying "keeping vaccinations up to date, washing hands regularly and preparing food hygienically" could help stop the spread of AMR.

"In the event of a person then becoming really ill or sustaining an acute traumatic injury, for which actual antibiotic treatment is required, antibiotic resistance may unfortunately already be present".

"Antibiotic resistance is becoming one of the biggest threats to global health according to the World Health Organisation".
