VALUE-Dx initiative to tackle antimicrobial resistance in respiratory infections
Antibiotic overprescriptions, particularly for ARTIs, are a key contributor to AMR. Both the English Surveillance Program for Antimicrobial Utilization and Resistance (ESPAUR) and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) have reported studies where up to 50% of prescribed antibiotics for ARTIs in Europe and the US were unnecessary. Furthermore, instances of inappropriately prescribed therapies for ARTIs have been correlated with higher mortality rates.
