A global call from five countries to collaborate in antibiotic stewardship: united we succeed, divided we might fail

A global call from five countries to collaborate in antibiotic stewardship: united we succeed, divided we might fail: In February, 2016, WHO released a report for the development of national action plans
to address the threat of antibiotic resistance, the catastrophic consequences of inaction,
and the need for antibiotic stewardship. Antibiotic stewardship combined with infection
prevention comprises a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to optimise use of
antibiotics. Efforts to mitigate overuse will be unsustainable without learning and
coordinating activities globally. In this Personal View, we provide examples of international
collaborations to address optimal prescribing, focusing on five countries that have
developed different approaches to antibiotic stewardship—the USA, South Africa, Colombia,
Australia, and the UK.
