Building Health System Resilience: The Role of Antimicrobials

A video series celebrating World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2021


“Antibiotics only have a finite lifetime. We only get to use any given antibiotic so many times before we wear it out. Thus it is important we make every use count. It needs to be for the right patient at the right dose for the right duration…By protecting and preserving antibiotics we ensure the availability of effective antibiotics and build health system resilience…Antibiotics are the fire extinguishers of medicine, and it is important that we think about them as valuable tools that make all of healthcare possible.”
