Infection Control and Antibiotic Resistance

Unity against immunity

Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They are normally harmless and are even helpful, but some and under certain conditions, organisms may cause sickness and disease. Some of these infectious diseases can be passed from human to human, and human to animal and vice versa. Some bacteria are becoming resistant to our developed antibiotics – the treatment originally developed to fight them.

For some of these bacteria, antibiotics are the only cure we have to fight them.
