Public Health #12: Our Time with Antibiotics is Running Out

“Our time with antibiotics is running out” – that’s the urgent message we are sending during Antibiotic Awareness week, which takes place from 12-18 November. By 2050, infections by antimicrobial resistant superbugs could kill an extra 10 million people each year worldwide, overtaking cancer.

Dr Lo Ying-Ru, WHO Representative to Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam and Singapore, and Datuk Dr Christopher Lee, Head and Senior Consultant Physician of Infectious Diseases, Hospital Sungai Buloh, join Azrul Mohd Khalib to discuss health and agricultural policies to curb antibiotic misuse.
