Presidential Message on Antibiotic Awareness Week, 2017

Antibiotic apocalypse~II WHO | World Antibiotic Awareness Week, 13-19 November 2017
Patty Aguilar | 15 November, 2017, 05:36

The week of November 13-19 is U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week, and members of Virginia's health care community, including the Virginia Department of Health, the Medical Society of Virginia, Health Quality Innovators, and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association are jointly supporting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Be Antibiotics Aware campaign.

Professor Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive at the healthcare institute, explained: "Antibiotic resistance is a concern for us all". The 2017 posters have been published on this site for use around the world as a campaign resource. The programme drives the responsible use of antimicrobials, and is aligned to the National Department of Health's (DoH) AMR National Strategy Framework 2014-2024 in response to the World Health Assembly's endorsement of a global action plan to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

This could include setting broken bones, basic operations, chemotherapy and animal health, which all rely on antibiotics.

World Health Organization has identified the immediate threat from 3 critical priority pathogens for which there is now limited antibiotic protection that are CRE (Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Carbapenem-resistant) and Acinetobacter (Carbapenem-resistant). The most important antimicrobials are antibiotics, which treat bacterial infections.

United Kingdom based pharma company, Helperby Therapeutics has developed Antibiotic Resistance Breakers (ARBs) as a solution to the present danger of antimicrobial resistance.

Many countries have already taken action to reduce the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals.

"Denying pigs, cows and chickens necessary antibiotics would be unethical and immoral, leading to animal suffering and possibly death, and could compromise the nation's food system", NPPC said in a statement.

The action plan sets out responsibilities for national governments, the World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), as well as other national and worldwide partners in responding to antimicrobial resistance.

- While such evolution is natural, the pace of AMR's spread is now on the rise due to inappropriate and excessive use of antimicrobials in humans, animals, and even in crops, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). For example, since 2006, the European Union has banned the use of antibiotics for growth promotion.

He said not all infections will be treated with antibiotics because antibiotics do not cure viruses like colds and flu. Once they stop working, it will be already too late.
