Public Urged to Use Antibiotics Responsibly

According to the Ministry of Health and Child Care, the commemorations are running from today until Friday under the theme: Seek advice from a qualified healthcare professional before taking antibiotics.

"We are all in this fight together", she said.

"People should purchase antibiotics from organisations that have complied with the law to supply antibiotics", he said.

Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world and threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. "Not only that, by using antibiotic treatment unnecessarily, other bacteria in the environment as well as the "healthy" bacteria in the body gets the opportunity to develop resistance due to exposure, which can potentially cause antibiotic resistant infections later on", says Dr Paul Soko executive head of clinical services and quality at Life Healthcare Group Antibiotic-resistant infections are complex and hard to treat.

Another dozen Penn State fraternity brothers charged in Tim Piazza hazing death
But prosecutors say a fraternity member erased key footage from a basement camera. Fourteen hours after Piazza showed up to the event he was rushed to the hospital.

The public is being urged to take greater responsibility in the use of antibiotics to prevent the further occurrence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The WHO said their guidelines contribute directly to the aims of the Global action plan on antimicrobial resistance adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2015 and the Declaration of the High-Level Meeting of the United Nations General Assembly on Antimicrobial Resistance, adopted in 2016. In addition, USDA's Acting Chief Scientist pushed back against the WHO recommendations contending that "The WHO guidelines are not in alignment with USA policy and are not supported by sound science", and stating that the "recommendations erroneously conflate disease prevention with growth promotion in animals". "Common colds and flus are, for example, caused by viruses, not bacteria, meaning that antibiotic therapy would be ineffective to treat these infections". Consumers are also driving the demand for meat raised without routine use of antibiotics, with some major food chains adopting "antibiotic-free" policies for their meat supplies. They will also help in identifying the bacteria that make people sick and specific groups that are at risk. In summary, the organisation recommends that use of antibiotics for growth promotion should be banned altogether; that healthy pigs should get treatments with antibiotics to prevent illness only when the disease is already clinically diagnosed in that herd.

Antibiotics can be life-saving when used appropriately, but their misuse can result in dire consequences.

Through overprescription and misuse, antibiotics are in danger of losing their effectiveness. In addition, it was found that while resistance to some antibiotics has decreased in animals, resistance to other antibiotics has increased.
