Antibiotic Resistance workshop
Old and new antibacterial drugs are becoming ineffective and certain common infections can no longer be cured, posing an enormous threat to animal and public health. A complex set of solutions are needed e.g. developing new antibiotics and improving old ones, rational use, improving infections prevention and monitoring, avoiding any environmental leakage and developing alternative treatments.
