Antibiotic resistance growing global threat that needs to be countered

The need for antibiotics to be used only when necessary is the message coming out as part of World Antibiotic Awareness Week

The survey of more than 1,000 adults found that 65 percent believe antibiotic resistance is a public health problem, and 81 percent are anxious that antibiotic resistance will make more infections hard to treat or even deadly. "We need to change the way in which people view and use antibiotics", said HE Dr Hanan Mohamed al- Kuwari, Minister of Public Health, who chaired a plenary session on antibiotic resistance during the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) in Doha this week. Each year in the United States, at least two million people become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria and at least 23,000 die.

Also, the many decades of liberal use of antibiotics to promote the health of farm animals and the contamination of the environment with these drugs have led to various superbugs. "Improving the way health care professionals prescribe antibiotics and educating consumers about how and when to take antibiotics, helps keep everyone healthy".

Global Positioning System with a higher workload are more likely to prescribe antibiotics, according to a new study from Public Health England and the University of Manchester.

"At the same time, there are some very harmful microbes that we need to be able to control with antibiotics".

Wright also said, "And that's the issue that we're finding right now, that there are increasingly bacteria in the clinic where we use lots of antibiotics that are unresponsive to all the drugs that we have available to us".

'Essentially, we are using more when we should use less and we are running out of our best options in case of emergency'. Last year, a new and comprehensive European Union action plan on antimicrobial resistance was adopted, setting the Commission's objectives to tackle it in human health, animal health and environment policies.

Currently, farmers can give an entire herd medicine if one animal becomes unwell, but this is a prime cause of growing antibiotic resistance, the letter warned.

The WHO has repeatedly warned the world is running out of effective antibiotics, and past year urged governments and big pharma companies to create a new generation of drugs to fight ultra-resistant supergerms.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has previously warned if nothing is done the world is heading for a "post-antibiotic" era.

A two-year study sponsored by the United Kingdom government and the Wellcome Trust, Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, which was published in 2016, estimated that at least 700 000 deaths annually are attributable to drug resistant microorganisms.

Both Wright and Morris stress that concerted action needs to be taken now to stem the tide of resistance, and that means the federal and provincial governments taking a leadership role to co-ordinate innovative programs to encourage antibiotic development, to find alternative treatments, and to curb misuse and overuse.

Additionally, the spokesperson said, the agency is working to put into place measures aimed at addressing antibiotic resistance through the Pan-Canadian Framework for Action, which was released previous year.
