Health Desk- 21 Nov 2020: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday sought coordinated global action to monitor the nature of infections, implement the required control measures and raise awareness against the widespread use of antibiotics.
‘We should also ensure affordable access to new antibiotics by all. For this, I also call for increased internationally coordinated investment for more research for inventing a new generation of antibiotics,’ she said.
The PM was speaking at the press event of the launching of ‘One Health Global Leaders Group on Antimicrobial Resistance’ virtually from the Gono Bhaban as a co-chair.
Sheikh Hasina said there is no doubt that antimicrobial resistance has become a global public health challenge both for humans and animals endangering food production and leading all towards catastrophic results.
