Antibiotic Action is an independent global initiative established in 2011 and wholly funded by the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC). We have serious concerns about the future effectiveness of available antibiotics and the lack of new drugs and other antimicrobial treatments under development. Antibiotic Action informs and educates everyone across the globe regardless of demographic group – the public, governments, health professionals, industries and charities – to identify and implement solutions within research, regulation and economic markets to stimulate and regenerate interest in the discovery and development plus responsible use of new treatments for bacterial infections. It is led by Professor Laura JV Piddock, Chair in Public Engagement and Professor of Microbiology, University of Birmingham, UK.
It is vital to the health of all nations that antibiotics remain the mainstay of modern medicine and are available to all who need them.
