IIMAR was formed in MARCH 2008 to promote prudent use of antibiotics so as to reduce the possibility of spread of antibiotic resistance.
Coordinators: Dr. A. J. Tamhankar & Dr. Mira Shiva.
Let us all JOIN together and spread a word for prudent use of antibiotics. Site Maintained by Dr. Ashok J. Tamhankar email@example.com
Antibiotic Resistance has spread'widely and wildly' among the disease causing bacteria. Resistant bacteria are everywhere; in hospitals, in community, inside our body -on our body, in agriculture, in animals, in the environment surrounding us,..... everywhere. You think of a place and they are there. They make the use of antibiotics ineffective, when we take them, when we are ill.
"Down to Earth"magazine has brought out an issue with a cover story on "Antibiotic Resistance", which has contributions byVibha Varshney, Dinsa Sachan and Sonal Matharu,who have talked to experts in this field, to bring into focus all aspects of this issue. Dinsa Sachan contacted me to elicit my views on the issue, which reflect in the cover story. We are thankful to her and the magazine for helping in spreading the awareness about the problem of the emerging threat of "Antibiotic resistance". - Dr. A.J. Tamhankar
