Antibiotic resistance is a serious health hazard
“Improving the drug literacy of the population -
that's what is an integral part of a solidarity with your health. ".
N. Nazarbayev
About 11 million people a year die from infectious diseases worldwide (according to the World Health Organization (WHO)). One of the most effective measures to combat them is the use of antibacterial agents. Antibiotic resistance is a phenomenon where bacteria change so much that antibiotics no longer have any effect on the body of the people who need them to fight the infection, and this is now one of the most serious threats to people's health.
According to a sociological study on the prevalence of self-administration of drugs conducted by the Drug Information and Analytical Center (LIAC) in 2014, almost one in four takes antibiotics without a doctor's prescription (27.5%), and only 67.9% of respondents take antibiotics only as prescribed by the doctor.
The history of antibiotics dates back a little over 70 years, although the role of microorganisms in the development of infectious diseases has been known since the second half of the 19th century. The term "antibiotic" was coined by the American microbiologist Z. Waxman, who received in 1952 the Nobel Prize for the discovery of streptomycin.
Currently, in the world in the arsenal of doctors there is a fairly large number of different antibiotics. But now, despite all the latest achievements of medicine, a person can die from infection! The main reason for this is the development of resistance of microorganisms to antibiotics. The resistance of pathogens to therapeutic drugs leads to a sharp decrease in the effectiveness of etiotropic therapy of infectious diseases.
For example, the use of gentamicin for the treatment of bronchitis or pneumonia is impractical and ineffective, due to the fact that gentamicin acts on microbes that are not typical for inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract. And what do we get with gentamicin in this case? Firstly, there is no therapeutic effect - it takes time and health, secondly, we contribute to the formation of microorganism strains resistant to gentamicin, and thirdly, gentamicin is not a harmless drug - it has a toxic effect on the kidneys and hearing organs.
A huge contribution to reducing the effectiveness of antibiotics is made by self-medication of the population. Colds, diarrhea, cystitis, bronchitis, tonsillitis and many other diseases are treated by the population on their own, and, unfortunately, the first aid is an antibiotic. It is very important to understand that antibiotics are harmful only to bacteria, not viruses.
What can each of us do?
People can help counteract sustainability by:
• use of antibiotics only when prescribed by a doctor;
• full compliance with the prescribed antibiotic regimen, even if you feel better;
• preventing the transfer of antibiotics to others or the use of residues of prescribed drugs.
REMEMBER the rules for the proper use of antibiotics:
- an antibiotic should be prescribed by a doctor;
- an antibiotic should be used in non-threatening situations only after determining the sensitivity of microbes to the action of antibiotics;
- The antibiotic should be used in its entirety at optimal therapeutic doses.
Does a citizen who has decided that he needs to be treated with antibiotics on his own? In most cases, of course not! Every doctor faces the consequences of this use of antibiotics and, unfortunately, the fight of infections by medical workers does not always end with the cure of the patient.
Indeed, not only the quality of treatment, but also the preservation of health depends on the correct use of medicines. And if in hospitals a patient can ask his questions to medical personnel, then at home such an opportunity is available when contacting the Medicinal Information and Analytical Center (LIAC), which was established since 2009 on behalf of the Head of State, as part of the implementation of the State Health Development Program of the Republic of Kazakhstan “Salamatty Kazakhstan” for 2011-2015 with the goal of changing the habitual way of life of citizens towards rational and proper use of drugs in Kazakhstan.
The main task of the center is to provide the population and medical workers with reliable information about the correct use of medicines, as well as about citizens' rights to free drugs as part of the guaranteed amount of free medical care, drug effectiveness and possible side effects.
LIAC is a state organization that is not affiliated with pharmaceutical companies and works closely with all the main institutions and organizations in the field of drug supply and healthcare.
The work of the center receives pleasant reviews both from Kazakhstani people and from foreign experts. In 2013, the World Bank expert, Dr. Andres Seiter, praised the work of the PIAC in Kazakhstan. He noted that “The drug information and analytical center and its nationwide free Call service have made impressive progress in informing the public ...”.
Today, the growing confidence of the population in the activities of LIAC and its necessity is evidenced by the numerous calls received at the Call-service. And if in 2012 about 22 thousand people turned to us, then over 10 months of 2014, more than 25 thousand people have already received a consultation.
Recall that since 2011, a single free telephone line has been operating in Kazakhstan for the population - 8 800 080 88 87. Every resident, even from the most remote corner of the country, can call the Call service for free and get an answer to an interesting question. Also, each person can ask a question on the official site of LIAC -
Dear people of Kazakhstan, value your life, your health and the health of your loved ones, be responsible every time when you are in a hurry to take an antibiotic for any reason!
