Antibiotic Action is a global public awareness initiative to inform everyone about drug resistance. We work with a wide variety of people, including professionals as well as the general public. We urge everyone to use existing antibiotics wisely and we promote the importance of infection prevention and control. However, we desperately need new treatments for infections and we recommend enhancing global efforts to discover these treatments.
Antibiotic Action was established in 2011 and is wholly funded by the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC). It is led by Professor Laura JV Piddock, BSAC Chair in Public Engagement and Professor of Microbiology, University of Birmingham, UK.
