New Zealand is joining the global battle to raise awareness around appropriate use of antibiotics.

As World Antibiotic Awareness Week began on Monday, the United Nations, through its Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), called for responsible use of antibiotics in humans and animals to reduce the emergence of antibiotic resistance. It occurs when bacteria develop resistance to an antibiotic treatment, which may be caused by overuse of the drugs or improper prescribing - such as prescribing antibiotics for a viral infection.

"The plan comes from the work of the Ministry of Health, Ministry for Primary Industries, and the human health, animal health, agricultural and wider scientific communities".

"People should purchase antibiotics from organisations that have complied with the law to supply antibiotics", he said.

"It's partly about explaining to patients why antibiotics won't help".

Antibiotic resistance "It is important that the public is aware that globally we are running out of effective antibiotics".

Dr John Wyeth from PHARMAC says they are charged with getting the best possible health outcomes for New Zealanders from the public medicines budget - and antimicrobial resistance could undermine that.

Contributing factors for this include an over-reliance on broad spectrum antibiotics and excessive use of topical antibiotics.

"We often forget that things we take for granted, like chemotherapy and surgery, would not be possible without antibiotics". People can hand in their unused or out of date antibiotics at any of the Trust's Lloyds outpatient pharmacies based at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, Charing Cross Hospital in Hammersmith and Hammersmith Hospital in Acton, until Wednesday 1 December.

"We found two completely unexpected mechanisms that bacteria use to protect themselves from antibiotics". Some nurses are prescribers now and more will come.

Those with Allen County Public Health say it's important to listen to your healthcare provider, and use antibiotics correctly, to avoid becoming more sick with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

The programme drives the responsible use of antimicrobials, and is aligned to the National Department of Health's (DoH) AMR National Strategy Framework 2014-2024 in response to the World Health Assembly's endorsement of a global action plan to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
