All set for antibiotics awareness week

She issued a statement in connection with World Antibiotic Awareness Week, which is being observed around the world from November 13-19 under the theme 'Seek advice from a qualified healthcare professional before taking antibiotics.' Activities during the week will include distribution of awareness material for human and animal health sectors, seminars and awareness walks, among others.

Professor Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive at the healthcare institute, explained: "Antibiotic resistance is a concern for us all".

"We are all responsible for preserving the effectiveness of the only effective antibiotics we have left, whether we prescribe, dispense, provide advice or need to take them", concludes Soko. "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. The 2017 posters have been published on this site for use around the world as a campaign resource. The goal of Be Antibiotics Aware is to remind the public and health care providers about safe antibiotic prescribing and use.

"We hope to increase the individual awareness of those on their personal use of antibiotics so that they use them correctly", Stegelmeier said.

"By cycling the breakers, it may be possible to extend the useful life of antibiotics".

"When this happens, farmers work with animal health experts and veterinarians to determine if an FDA-approved antibiotic is needed - the right medicine, at the right dose, for the right amount of time, for the right reason".

Doctors increasingly rely on last resort antibiotics such as carbapenems and colistin, but as harmful bacteria continue to mutate, this final line of resistance will eventually fail. Being more careful not to use antibiotics unless completely necessary.

Because of its complexity, antimicrobial resistance mitigation in food and agriculture can not be addressed by a single sector or strategy, but through various disciplines working together to contribute to producing safer foods and creating a better environment for all.

"Action to manage antibiotic use and control AMR in one sector must go hand-in-hand with enforcement of regulations in and collaboration with other sectors". At the 68th session of the World Health Assembly in Geneva in May 2015, delegates endorsed a Global Action Plan to tackle AMR.

My Administration is, therefore, committed to implementing the National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria.

Governments and their citizens must take responsibility when it comes to the use of antibiotics.
