Protimikrobna odpornost

Kako se lahko bolje spopademo z bakterijami, odpornimi na antibiotike?

Prepričljivi dokazi kažejo, da povečana uporaba, prekomerno predpisovanje in prekomerna poraba zdravil, vodijo v porast števila bakterij, odpornih na antibiotike. Vendar veliko ljudi pretirano in napačno uporablja protimikrobne kemikalije, ker nimajo dovolj znanja o okužbah in protimikrobnih sredstvih – to je kritično vprašanje po vsem svetu, ki vpliva na naše zdravje in ogroža naša življenja. Zato je pomemben korak k reševanju tega vprašanja, da ga obravnavamo v učilnicah za izobraževanje in z ozaveščenim ukrepanjem. Projekt MULTIPLIERS, ki se bo začel izvajati na Cipru, bo vključeval učence in njihove družine, da bi z neposrednimi izkušnjami z ustreznimi zainteresiranimi stranmi razvili globlje razumevanje te teme, kar jim bo na koncu omogočilo sprejemanje bolj informiranih odločitev o uporabi antibiotikov.
