One of the greatest global challenges facing  medicine and public health these days is that of antimicrobial resistance. This current, ever-increasing problem is the topic of much research, policy, and survey worldwide, even being addressed by the World Health Organization (WHO) with the first ‘World Antibiotic Awareness Week’ campaign held in November 2015. This global initiative sought to bring awareness to the topic of antibiotic resistance and to recommend guidelines to the public, health professionals, and policymakers for antibiotics usage. This was held alongside the release of the results of WHO’s multi-country survey that studied public awareness of antibiotic resistance. At this time, there is a global call and new initiative for a multi-pronged approach to the problem of antimicrobial resistance, surely one that combines the sciences of microbiology and public health
