World Health Organization Update on Drug Resistance

According to an April, 2014 report by the World Health Organization on growing drug resistance,

“Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections… a problem so serious that it threatens the achievements of modern medicine. A post-antibiotic era – in which common infections and minor injuries can kill – far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st Century.”
