The Recent UN Report on Antibiotic Resistance
May 3, 2019
The United Nations appointed Interagency Coordination Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (IACG) has presented its report on Recommendations to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). It is clear from the report that AMR is a global and complex threat that needs to be addressed with extreme urgency and with care. Consistent, coordinated and conscious actions are demanded, especially from the World Goverments, Academia, Public, Healthcare-Industry and Agriculture. A world where bacterial infections cannot be fought efficiently is a world of perils.
Here is an excerpt from the IACG report.
“The challenges of antimicrobial resistance are complex and multifaceted, but they are not insurmountable. Implementation of the recommendations in this report will help to save millions of lives, preserve antimicrobials for generations to come and secure the future from drug-resistant diseases.
But there is no time to wait.”
