5 minutes to explain... Antibiotic resistance. A global health priority

5 minutes to explain- antibiotic resistance

Antibiotic resistance is set to be one of this century’s major public health challenges. Few people are aware of this issue, which is also poorly documented. A report commissioned by the British government in 2016 estimated that as many as 10 million people could die from an antibiotic resistant infection by the year 2050. In this 5 minutes to explain video, we look at the issues surrounding antibiotic resistance on a global scale, but also for MSF, and how are teams are tackling this enormous challenge in the countries we work.
