What is antibiotic resistance?

This week is the WHO’s World Antibiotic Awareness Week, which raises awareness of one of the world’s biggest health threats. But what is antibiotic resistance? How is it spread? What can we do to prevent its spread? These are some of the questions answered in our new video.

The Microbiology Society has produced a selection of other resources, including: a comic for teaching Keystage 2 and 3 students about the issue; information about our citizen science project ‘Antibiotics Unearthed’; and a feature article about the global spread of resistance from our Microbiology Today magazine.
