Let's start wisely using antibiotics

[ad_1] | The discovery of antibiotic drugs is beneficial to human life around the world. But if you use it incorrectly, it will be a disaster. It is not wise to take antibiotics can cause antimicrobial resistance in the body.

In the World Antibiotic Awareness Week at Universitas Brawijaya in Malang, a child specialist on Saturday (17.11.2018) and YOP, Yulianto Santoso also said that he often faces patients who could not be healed, even to death, because the drugs were no longer effective in killing bacteria.

According to him, this was due to antimicrobial resistance. The behavior of health workers, including the convenience of people buying antibiotics, is the trigger.

"We conducted a survey whose results showed that year-on-year use of antibiotics for coughs and diarrhea remained high at around 60%. In the health center, people get sick due to cough and cold, who are also receiving antibiotics If it is not controlled, 10 million people will die every year in 2050. That means that every minute there are 19 deaths due to bacterial infections that can not be cured, "Yulianto said.

Besides Yulianto from YOP, representatives of the Ministry of Human Development and Culture (PMK), Ministry of Agriculture (Ministry of Agriculture), Ministry of Environment and Forests (KLHK) and Indonesian (UNOHUN) also attended the event.

Ministries and cross-sectoral organizations meet to raise awareness of the dangers of antimicrobial resistance and the threat of new infectious diseases (GDP).

In his remarks, Director of Public Health Veterinary, Ministry of Agriculture, Syamsul Maurice, said that antimicrobial resistance is set to become Number 1 Killer in the world by 2050.

In the same year, he said, it has been estimated that deaths have reached 10 million people a year, and the largest number has occurred in Asia.

"Therefore, we all gather together here, inviting us to fight with the rate of antimicrobial resistance and to control new infectious diseases, especially for our younger brothers who will graduate from the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, the Faculty of Public Health and other faculties technical skills to become agents of change in order to achieve optimal public health, animal health and environmental health, "said Syamsul Maarif.

"Over the past decade, viral epidemics have been highlighted in the world, such as H1N1, Ebola, Mers-CoV and Zika, but it seems that changes in the character of pathogens also occur in bacteria that are continually immune growth from different classes of antibiotics, "said Rama Fauzi, PMK's representative.
