‘Urgent’ Global Action Needed To Tackle Antibiotic Resistance

Financial Times: Keep medicine out of the dark ages
“David Cameron has added his voice to increasingly urgent warnings by the world’s public health leaders about the growth of antibiotic resistance. Besides talking about a return to ‘the dark ages of medicine’ if we lose our power to kill microbes, the prime minister announced an internationally focused commission to come up with solutions to the crisis. … Whatever the … commission recommends, action is urgent. Next year should mark the start of a concerted global campaign to prevent medicine returning to the dark ages” (7/2).
