ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE SOLUTIONS
Have you used a fire extinguisher today? Are you using one now?
Even when there isn’t a fire, you’re using a fire extinguisher. You bought it, you stored it, and you know it will work.
Antibiotics are to infections as fire extinguishers are to fires.
Fire fighters know their tools will put out the biggest of flames but the same cannot be said for physicians.
Antibiotics provide a safety net for all of health care. This safety net is beginning to fall apart because of issues like superbugs, failing agent development pipelines, and problematic economic models.
The fire department isn’t paid per fire.
You don’t buy a fire extinguisher as the fire is breaking out.
