Policy brief on fighting antibiotic resistance


Antibiotic resistance is a global threat to health and development. But the way we behave can either slow this process down or speed it up. Antibiotic resistance is a collective problem. It is also a shared responsibility. And it is not limited to medical antibiotic use. Whether it is choices made in the dairy aisle or by ensuring vaccinations are up-to-date before travelling, the effectiveness of our efforts to to curb antibiotic resistance will depend on our behaviour.

Policy briefWe need to raise awareness of how individuals’ actions contribute to antibiotic resistance and learn why they use antibiotics responsibly, why they sometimes do not, and what encourages them to do better. 

This policy brief contains Mirko Ancillotti's recommendations for fighting antibiotic resistance. 

Fighting antibiotic resistance: We can do better!
