Research

Research is the only way to find a solution to antibiotic resistance. Without research, we will not be able to prevent future generations from dying due to bacterial infections. Common medical procedures will no longer be safe. Childbirth will become increasingly dangerous. Read on to find out how we are fighting back against that future.

We are the only charity in the world dedicated to fighting antibiotic resistance – please to support us today.
