Antimicrobial resistance is a bigger threat to mankind in developing countries

  31 May 2019

Antimicrobial resistance is an emerging public health threat worldwide but nowhere its socio-economic effect is as stark as in developing countries. Centre for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), Atlanta, USA published a data on annual deaths due to antibiotic resistance (AR) in European Union, India, Thailand and USA; 25000 deaths per year, 58000 babies died in a year, 38000+ deaths per year, and 23,000+ deaths per year respectively. Another report found high crude infectious disease mortality rate in India i.e. 416.75 per 100,000 persons and considered misuse of antibiotics along with suboptimal dosing, environmental contamination etc. are the major drivers for incidence of AR.
