World Antibiotics Awareness Week

First@Five 15/11/2017

Canterbury Health System is getting behind World Antibiotics Awareness Week and you should too. Antibiotic resistance caused by the misuse or overuse of antibiotics is one of the biggest threats to global health today.

Each time antibiotics are used there is a chance that some bacteria will survive and be resistant to future treatment. Dr Alistair Humphrey, Canterbury DHB talks to James on the proper use of antibiotics.

First at Five with James Coleman 5am - 6am on RadioLIVE and streaming live to the rova app on Android and iPhone.
