What is Antibiotic Resistance?
Why Should I Care About Antibiotic Resistance?
Antibiotic resistance has been called one of the world's most pressing public health problems.
Antibiotic resistance can cause illnesses that were once easily treatable with antibiotics to become dangerous infections, prolonging suffering for children and adults. Also in some cases can lead to death.
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria can spread to family members, schoolmates, and co-workers, and may threaten your community.
Although some people think a person becomes resistant to specific drugs, it is the bacteria, not the person, that become resistant to the drugs.
