Get the Facts: Antibiotics in Modern Medicine

This is a series of posters and fact sheets about the use of antibiotics in modern human medicine, and how antibiotics affect the lives of those around us every day, even if you can’t see it.

Antibiotics are crucial to almost all aspects of modern medicine. Without antibiotics, doctors may no longer be able to effectively cure cancer patients, or perform basic surgeries, or keep diabetes patients healthy, or save pre-term babies from chronic brain damage. Antibiotic resistance is pushing us closer to the edge of a post-antibiotic era – for some conditions, we are already there.

To find out more about how and why antibiotics are important for the care of patients in today’s world, take a look at our fact sheets: share them with your friends, or print them off and put them up in your waiting rooms!
