The study also noted that lack of access to antibiotics kills more people than antibiotic resistance.

Report highlights lack of access to life-saving drugs

Pesticides and antibiotics are polluting streams across Europe, a study has found.

But the residues have also added to the problem in food change.

As current antibiotics dwindle in effectiveness against multidrug-resistant pathogens, researchers are seeking potential replacements in some unlikely places.

Antibiotic resistance appears to be spreading in the environment. A new study has found a large number of bacteria which are resistant to commonly used antibiotics in stretches of river Ganga.

Many people living with HIV in rural areas are developing drug resistance due to lack of access to their daily antiretroviral drugs (ARVs), lack of food and drug stock-outs and shortages.

Soils in tropical and temperate locations are known to be a sink for the genetic potential of anthropogenic-driven acquired antibiotic resistance (AR). In contrast, accumulation of acquired AR is less probable in most Polar soils, providing a platform for characterizing background resistance and establishing a benchmark for assessing AR spread.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a priority for surveillance in bacterial infections.

Tanzania and Burundi are among the top four countries in Africa in consumption of antibiotics, new data published by the World Health Organisation shows.
