Antibiotic resistance is a global problem: all over the world, more and more bacteria are becoming resistant, and an increasing number of people are dying from infections it used to be possible to treat. International cooperation has to be stepped up to preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics in the long term. With this goal, more than 200 representatives from over 40 nations met for the 2nd Ministerial Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance in the Netherlands.
