Govt's anti microbial resistance plan 'lost opportunity'

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 15 August 2017

The government has launched an action plan to address the threat of anti microbial resistance, in humans, animals and plants. The plan sets out five key objectives it says align with international efforts, and is a joint document produced by the Ministries of Health and Primary Industries. Nine to Noon science commentator, Auckland University microbiologist and author of Antibiotic Resistance:The End of Modern Medicine? Siouxsie Wiles, says the action plan is underwhelming and misses a big opportunity.
