Development of infections resistant to antibiotics is a threat to modern healthcare. We support efforts to prevent antibiotic resistance.

A challenge to modern healthcare that concerns everyone, everywhere

Almost everybody today have antibiotics to thank for the life or health of a loved one. Antibiotics makes routine procedures safe and advanced treatments possible. When infections become resistant to antibiotics, we lose our ability to treat them.
