The Socioeconomic Drivers Behind Antimicrobial Resistance in Sri Lanka SOAS Radio

    • Technology

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.
