Report, Interactive Map Examine Trends In Antibiotic Resistance

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: Antibiotic resistance poses growing threat to fragile health systems
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” discusses the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy’s State of the World’s Antibiotics 2015 report, which “tracks trends of growing antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria … in high-income countries as well as low-and-middle income countries. … The report attributes the growing problem to two factors — increasing use of antibiotics in humans, and in animals…” CDDEP also released an interactive map, ResistanceMap, showing trends of antibiotic resistance (9/17).
