World Health Organization officials endorse a global strategy to combat the spread of antibiotic resistance.

“Through adoption of the global plan, governments all committed to have in place, by May 2017, a national action plan on antimicrobial resistance that is aligned with the global action plan,” WHO noted in a May 25 statement. The international strategy involves education, surveillance, incidence reduction, treatment optimization, and investment in antimicrobial resistance research.
“Globally this is a really big issue,” Keiji Fukuda, WHO’s assistant director-general for health security, told NPR’s Goats and Soda. “We are seeing the same patterns of resistance basically occur everywhere.”
Although the WHO has strengthened its commitment to fighting antibiotic resistance, in an interview with The New York Times this week (May 25), England’s Chief Medical Officer Sally Davies said, “we may be a bit late. . . . If you look at the trajectories of rising antimicrobial resistance, increasing use of antibiotics, and a lack of new antibiotics, this could be a catastrophe.”

A major part of this problem is our focus on destroying the enemy. That focus will elicit resistance whereever it is used. Just as Kalev Sepp has found when looking at insurgencies and Paul Ewald has found when looking at infectious diseases we are better off containing the problem by addressing its roots (in insurrections) and limiting bacterial spread and adherence in infectious disease. Properly used inexpensive sugar alcohols have been shown to do just that in the case of our largest infectious disease--caries--and the potential is there for nasal use as well--where most infections originate.
