    The Socioeconomic Drivers Behind Antimicrobial Resistance in Sri Lanka

    The Socioeconomic Drivers Behind Antimicrobial Resistance in Sri Lanka

    This podcast series explores various potential channels of antibiotic resistance transmission in Sri Lanka with the focus on wildlife, socio-economic drivers and culture based on the findings from the latest research projects funded by Bloomsbury SET UK.
    Following the previous podcast on antibiotic resistance & wildlife, we will further discuss socio-economic drivers of antibiotic resistance today. We learnt in the last podcast that the antibiotic resistance transmission is caused not only due to its over-use in healthcare facilities, but the underlying causes are much more complex, such as wildlife, contributing to antibiotic resistance spread through waterways through various channels. This means even without over-using antibiotics, there is a potential threat of antibiotic resistance spread via water contamination because of various factors such as poor sanitation, waste management. We will closely look into this indirect pathway in detail today.
