Petition Invest more funds to discover new antibiotics.
We can’t let antibiotics stop working. Not in our lifetime. We need to stop this global crisis from becoming the next pandemic. We urgently need the government to allocate additional funding into research, so that scientists can discover effective new antibiotics before it’s too late.
Bacteria are rapidly learning to resist antibiotics. This is called Antimicrobial Resistance, or AMR. It’s already a leading cause of death worldwide. And it’s getting closer to home every day. Time is running out. Antibiotics are becoming less effective, and if antibiotics stop working, everyday activities like sex or football could become life threatening in our lifetime. Due to a lack of investment in research, we haven’t discovered a new class of antibiotics for almost 40 years.
