Antibiotic misuse could lead to their ineffectiveness

Dr Boyden said the World Health Organisation has warned antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest threats to human health today and is making it increasingly hard to treat bacterial infections.

According to Allen County Public Health, at least 2 million people a year get infected with antibiotic resistant bacteria in the United States. This, in turn, limits the arsenal of antibiotics that healthcare professionals are able to use to tackle disease effectively.

"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".

Dentists are responsible for around three per cent of all antibiotics prescribed in Australia annually and the ADA is calling on its members to continue to use antibiotics judiciously, and to keep abreast of the latest research on this vital issue.

Suzanne Dougherty, executive vice president of the American Association of Avian Pathologists, noted that most of the antibiotics used in poultry are ionophores, which are not considered by FDA or World Health Organization to be medically important to humans.

HQI, VDH, and VHHA co-chair Virginia's Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) Advisory Council.

World Health Organization has announced new recommendations tailored to preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics in humans by reducing their unnecessary use in animals. VHHA livestreamed that event on Facebook; the recording can be viewed here. They should only be used for bacterial infections that the body's own immune response can not fight, and only when a doctor prescribes them. "We can all minimize our risk of illness by taking these simple preventive actions-washing our hands, getting an annual flu shot and staying home when ill".

"We must engage the communities and make sure everyone knows how to use antibiotics responsibly".

"Stewardship programmes only work when everyone is on the same page". While these efforts will surely be fruitful, the best way for us to combat the public health threats from bacterial infections is for patients and doctors alike to do their part and prescribe and use antibiotics only when needed and only as directed.

"The correct use of our antibiotic arsenal is something in which everyone can help".

"We often forget that things we take for granted, like chemotherapy and surgery, would not be possible without antibiotics". "Let's just cover patients for their condition,"' said Dr. Kurt Elward, MD, MPH, FAAFP, President of the Medical Society of Virginia. "It is very good news". The Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance has been developed and was endorsed by all countries to address this threat by involving various sectors, such as the agriculture, public health, environmental and other relevant sectors.
