There has been increasing concern over the issue of antibiotic resistance (ABR) worldwide. ABR compromises the effectiveness of standard treatments and results in increased mortality and poor patient outcomes. Infections are harder to control, and the risks linked to hospital acquired infections are increased. It also causes longer hospital stays and more expensive treatment, thus increasing the costs of patient care. New affordable classes of antibiotics are not under development and altering prescribing

practices and patient expectations is a decades-long endeavour. The situation is all the more serious because antimicrobials have become an essential tool for modern medicine. Many surgical operations could not be performed without them (burns, traumatology, etc.). Despite the fact that ABR is a global societal problem, as medical actors, MSF has to take full responsibility and act to reduce its impact on ABR. In the MSF-OCP 2017-2019 Strategic Plan ABR is identified as one of the five medical and public health challenges requiring special investment by MSF-OCP.
