In new research released for World Antibiotic Week by independent not-for-profit NPS MedicineWise, a survey of 2509 people revealed 35% of 16- to 24-year-olds ask health professionals for antibiotics when they have colds or flu.

Antibiotics should be reserved for "serious" infections.

ZIMBABWE will this week join the rest of the world in commemorating World Antibiotic Awareness Week to raise awareness on the need to preserve available antibiotics and responsible use of the drugs to avoid antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Antibiotics are a valuable and powerful tool in keeping people well - but inappropriate use is causing a growth in antimicrobial resistance, undermining the effectiveness of antibiotics and threatening common medical treatments and surgery.

To tackle these problems, WHO, FAO and OIE are leveraging their expertise and working together in a "One Health" approach to promote best practices to reduce the emergence and spread of antibiotic-resistant microbes in both humans and animals. The majority of sore throats are also viral - although it is important to check you don't have tonsillitis due to the streptococcal bacteria, once this has been ruled out antibiotics aren't necessary. They will also help in identifying the bacteria that make people sick and specific groups that are at risk. Taking only part of a course of antibiotics, sharing them with someone else, missing doses or "stock-piling" them for a future occasion all contribute to increased resistance in the community. An immediate press release stated: "A ban on disease prevention uses of antibiotics in food-animal production being advocated by the World Health Organization would be ill-advised and wrong". However, Japan, France and Spain have documented cases of gonorrhoea that are resistant, not only to these, but to all other known antibiotics. If you or your child has a sore ear for example (however bad this can be), using antibiotics is unlikely to alter the "natural course" of the infection by more than a day or so.
