Confronting the Threats of Antimicrobial Resistance

Widespread use of antimicrobial agents has altered the abundance, distribution, and levels of antimicrobial resistance globally. Though modern antibiotics are essential for treating and preventing infections, they can also alter the microbes that humans and other biological systems need to survive. Moreover, antibiotic residues contaminate soil, rivers, and other surface waters—causing widespread changes in microbial communities. Mary Wilson addresses the importance of understanding the main drivers of antimicrobial resistance and looks to the benefits of specific interventions from a One Health perspective, which takes into account the interconnectedness of humans, animals, and the environment.
