About Course

A hundred years ago, medicine looked very different. Even though we understood that microbes like bacteria or viruses could cause disease and infection, people died in the millions of simple infections or diseases like tuberculosis without much hope of recovery. In many cases, all we could do was hope someone would get better after falling ill.

After that, antibiotics came to save all lives, but a few years later, antibiotics became resistant. Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. Also, new resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. A growing list of infections – such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, blood poisoning, gonorrhea, and foodborne diseases – are becoming harder, and sometimes impossible, to treat as antibiotics become less effective. Antibiotic resistance leads to higher medical costs, prolonged hospital stays, and increased mortality. The world urgently needs to change the way it prescribes and uses antibiotics.

The Global Impact of Antibiotic Resistance course will be suitable for learners who have entered the tertiary level of education. This course introduces you to the basic concept of antibiotics and the historical perspectives of antibiotics, focusing on understanding how antibiotics become resistant. It covers the prime concepts of classification and the fundamental mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, antibiotics targets. There will be a focus on how we can control and prevent antibiotic resistance. The learners will also learn effectively about the etiology and how antibiotic resistance spread through humans. Upon completion, students will be able to learn the antibiotic discovery and resistance timeline. If you want to improve your knowledge about antibiotic resistance and its global impact, this course will be a perfect choice to begin with.
