Antibiotika-Resistenz

Wie können wir besser mit Bakterien umgehen, die gegen Antibiotika resistent sind?

Es ist wissenschaftlich deutlich belegt, dass die vermehrte Verschreibung und der übermäßige Gebrauch von Antibiotika zu antibiotikaresistenten Keimen führen. Viele Menschen verwenden nach wie vor antimikrobielle Chemikalien übermäßig und missbräuchlich, weil ihnen das Wissen über Infektionen und antimikrobielle Wirkstoffe fehlt – ein großes Problem, das weltweit unsere Gesundheit beeinträchtigt und unser Leben gefährdet. Ein wichtiger Schritt zur Bewältigung dieses Problems besteht daher darin, es in der Schule zu bearbeiten und Schüler*innen zu informiertem Handeln zu befähigen. Beginnend in Zypern wird MULTIPLIERS Schüler*innen und ihre Familien einbeziehen, um ein tieferes Verständnis für das Thema zu entwickeln, indem sie Erfahrungen aus erster Hand mit relevanten Expert*innen machen, um im Anschluss informierte Entscheidungen über den Einsatz von Antibiotika treffen zu können.
