NZ in global antibiotic awareness battle

Antibiotics abuse on pig and poultry farms could have a devasting effect

Inappropriate use of antibiotics, such as taking them for viral conditions like flu, or for mild infections that may clear-up without treatment is known to fuel resistance.

During Antibiotic Awareness Week, we recognize the often underappreciated threat that resistance to antibiotics poses to our Nation's health.

Globally, antimicrobial resistance is becoming a core political, social, and economic problem due to it being a critical public health threat.

Allen County Public Health has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to encourage people to "Be Antibiotics Aware" by learning more about safe antibiotic procedures. The figure will be higher than the estimated cancer fatalities. The widespread dissemination of resistant bacteria or "superbugs" and genes occurs in the environment and food systems.

BEVA is giving free online access to its antimicrobial Congress session with two lectures from the 2017 BEVA Congress: Antimicrobial resistance - One Health gets serious presented by Professor the Lord Trees and Antimicrobial use in equine practice presented by John Marshall.

A systematic review published last week in The Lancet Planetary Health found that interventions that restrict antibiotic use in food-producing animals reduced antibiotic-resistant bacteria in these animals by up to 39 per cent. It also promotes public education about the illnesses antibiotics treat, how to appropriately take antibiotics, and the side effects of antibiotics.

There is hope in tackling antimicrobial resistance. By pledging you commit to stop the misuse of antibiotics and will receive information about what action to take to combat resistance.

The FAO has further initiated activities in the Asia-Pacific region since September 2016 to harmonize antimicrobial resistance surveillance and review antimicrobial resistance policies. In 2012 BEVA launched the Protect ME antimicrobial campaign to facilitate compliance and educate the public about the importance of antimicrobial awareness. The United States has introduced a voluntary ban.

Imperial staff and students will have an opportunity to hand over any unused antibiotics this week as part of an annual amnesty.

Since they were first marketed in the 1940s, antibiotics have helped to revolutionize modern healthcare, offering cures to previously untreatable infections.

NICE says stewardship programmes - where healthcare providers are taught specifically when and where to use antibiotic treatment - could slow down the development of medicine resistance in diseases.

The Animal Health Institute reiterated its position that antibiotics need to be used responsibly in food-animal production, not eliminated altogether.
