SATREPS Vietnam Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Project International Symposium - Dissemination and Suppression of Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

2016-10-28 (Fri) 13:00 - 16:30

The appearance of super-resistant bacteria in recent years has shaken the world due to the danger of bringing about incurable infections. Abuse of antibiotics not only in the realm of medicine, but also in the livestock and marine industries, has been pointed out as being behind this appearance.

The migration of people and the distribution of livestock and marine products have expanded to a global scale, which has become a large problem in the public health sector. Resistant bacteria can appear and spread easily under certain circumstances in social life (including eating), and it goes without saying that because these resistance genes exist on plasmids, it is highly possible that this resistance can be transmitted horizontally between bacteria.

The increase of healthy individuals with multi-drug resistant bacteria in developing countries is known to be on the rise in recent years, and if appropriate countermeasures are not developed to combat this increase, due to the nature of multi-drug resistant bacteria, it could become a threat not only to specific countries or regions, but to the entire world.

The spread of drug-resistant bacteria is not something that will be confined to nosocomial infections; rather, it's a problem that affects society as a whole, including lifestyle, food control, and distribution. In developing countries, these tendencies are striking, making for an urgent public health issue.

At this symposium, we'll hold a multi-faceted discussion on the current situation of the spread of drug-resistant bacteria and efforts to control it with researchers and policy-makers who are active in various fields, while exploring countermeasures moving forward.
