World Health Day 2011

Antibiotic resistance is a concern for everyone. Bacteria that cause common and life-threatening infections are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics – the medicines used to treat them. This urgent problem is the focus of World Health Day 2011.

In a series of interviews, people personally affected by antibiotic resistance and people who are working to improve the situation share their experiences and explain what they think needs to be done.
