Antibiotic Resistance and Misuse in India

Antibiotic Resistance and Misuse in India


The antibiotic resistance crisis in India, causing approximately seven lakh annual deaths and projected to reach 10 million by 2050, necessitates urgent intervention. Government directives to regulate antibiotic prescriptions highlight the severity of the issue, exacerbated by widespread misuse and environmental factors. Selling medicines without prescriptions persists, undermining existing regulations. The alarming rise in drug resistance is exacerbated by incomplete patient treatments and physician reliance on uncertain diagnoses. A prescription tool, like Nice HMS, aligns with government directives, emphasizing reasons for drug prescriptions. The scoping report on antimicrobial resistance underscores the urgent need for comprehensive strategies to mitigate the potential public health implications.
