EAAD video on antibiotic resistance

news

This year, ECDC produced an animation video on the spread of antibiotic resistance.

The animation is based on an infographic produced last year and explains how antibiotic resistance spreads in animal farming, in the community, in healthcare facilities and through travel.

The video was developed as part of ECDC´s efforts to support national campaigns on prudent antibiotic use.

Inappropriate use of antibiotics, combined with poor hygienic practices, accelerates the emergence and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Hence, keeping antibiotics effective is everyone’s responsibility!
