CDDEP launches animated video to raise awareness about antibiotic resistance

The Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy released a video in honor of World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2017, Nov. 13 to Nov. 19.

The CDDEP's Global Antibiotic Resistance Partnership released the animated video, which focuses on how bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics and turn into superbugs.

The Global Antibiotic Resistance Partnership, established in 2009, aims to create a platform for developing antibiotic resistance-focused policy proposals in low-and middle-income countries. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as well as an independent public policy grant from Merck & Co. support the partnership.
