Antibiotics

Reducing risks from antibiotic resistence

  • Summary of the problem: Antibiotic resistence makes antibiotics less effective and creates a public health risk.
  • Summary of solutions: This risk could be reduced through education and advocacy around how antibiotics are overused or through research to create better antibiotics.
  • General sense: Federal governments already devote a lot of resources to this, but much about the scale and tractability is still unknown. Few major players outside of federal governments exist.
