Resistenza antimicrobica

Come possiamo affrontare al meglio i batteri resistenti agli antibiotici?

L’evidenza scientifica dimostra che l’eccesso di prescrizioni e il consumo eccessivo stanno portando a un aumento dei microorganismi resistenti agli antibiotici. Tuttavia, molte persone fanno un uso eccessivo e improprio di sostanze chimiche antimicrobiche perché non conoscono le infezioni e gli agenti antimicrobici: questo è un problema globale che ha gravi conseguenze sulla nostra salute e mette a rischio le nostre vite. Pertanto, è importante affrontare questo problema nelle aule scolastiche e promuovere iniziative per aumentare la consapevolezza. MULTIPLIERS coinvolgerà per primi gli studenti di Cipro e le loro famiglie per approfondire le conoscenze su questa problematica, favorendo l’interazione con esperti del settore, e fornendo gli strumenti per decidere in modo consapevole sulle modalità di utilizzo degli antibiotici.
