Your support today could help to save modern medicine.
Antibiotic resistance is growing and already destroying lives. Without effective antibiotics, people all over the world could die from simple infections such as chest, ear and urinary tract, and everyday treatments for cancer and heart disease and operations such as hip replacements and caesareans would be too risky to undertake. Unless something is done 10 million people a year could die from antibiotic resistance by 2050.
Antibiotic Research UK is the only charity worldwide tackling this problem. We fund research into developing new medications, support patients affected by antibiotic resistant infections and provide professional and public education.

We fund research into new antibiotic therapies. We have a research project looking at using alternatives to antibiotics to treat traveller’s diarrhoea and another using an antibiotic resistance breaker alongside existing antibiotics. Click here for more information: research
We educate the public and professionals into appropriate use of antibiotics. By ensuring we use antibiotics appropriately we will slow the rate of resistance.
