It is time we got serious about tackling bacterial resistance. Funding priority is given to innovation (new diagnostics and new antibiotics), while ensuring sustainable and sufficient funding of antibiotic stewardship teams, in all settings, is completely neglected.

 

ESGAP members, along with international experts on antibiotic resistance and stewardship, have written a Commentary in Clinical Microbiology and Infection (see here) to explain why this is a much-needed strategy. A podcast including an interview about this topic can be found here.
