The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), together with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), promote appropriate use and best practice to prevent the appearance and multiplication of microbes antibiotics resistant.
From a website, the international body is always calling to consult a specialist to get antibiotics only when that is really necessary and contribute to the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
For the world day, which will last until the following day 18, FAO has placed an interactive tripart platform platform (Trello) and is invited to share its content on social networks and promote the events that are developed in this regard.
Similarly, it aims to follow the campaign on social networks using the #AMR label to raise awareness of the health risks due to the unfamiliar use of these drugs.
According to the FAO, at least 700,000 people die each year of resistant resistant infections and an inflexible number of sick animals may not respond to treatment.
AMR is a major global threat to public health, food safety and food safety, as well as life, animal production and economic and agricultural development, the agency said.
In agriculture, production intensified leads to an increase in antimicrobial application, which will double in 2030, FAO warned and noted the importance of preventing infections and implementing agricultural policies in a sustainable manner.
AMR is a natural process that occurs when bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi are resistant to the effects of antimicrobial drugs, such as antibiotics, which, when losing their effects, make infections and diseases difficult or impossible to improve.
