Antibiotic resistance

The global threat of antibiotic resistance

Our medicines have started to fail and antibiotic resistance has become one of the greatest threats to global health.

A complex global challenge

Antibiotic resistance is threatening the world’s sustainable development. Several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be difficult to achieve without effective antibiotics.

What do we need?

Antibiotic resistance cannot be fixed by easy technical interventions but must be coherently addressed across sectors and at all levels of society.

Take action

We have been wasting our antibiotic resources for too long and urgent change is needed if we are to reverse current trends. We can all do something!
