"the Debaters: it Requires a Greta for our politicians to understand the crisis?"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. It is high time to face the truth. More and more antibiotics stop working because bacteria become resistant (resistant) and deaths due to infections caused by such bacteria is constantly increasing. "
"Just like with climate affected the poorest and most vulnerable the hardest. In low-income countries often lack effective antibiotics and the lack of clean water and sanitation increase the spread of bacteria. In Malawi, for example up to 90 percent of the bacteria that causes sepsis (blood poisoning) resistant to commonly used antibiotics available. "
"Several countries in Asia are now struggling against the resistant epidemics in hospitals, with a mortality rate of 50% among newborns. "
"For premature babies with resistant infections have died, even in Sweden. In the EU die in the day close to 100 people every day to antibiotikabehandlingen against bacterial infections falters. The entire modern health care system is threatened. "
"In some countries is the mortality rate of stamcellstransplanterade patients carrying multidrug-resistant bacteria is so high that it is debating whether the procedure is ethically defensible. "
"at the same time, it can last reservmedlet against multidrug-resistant bacteria – colistin – purchased free kilos, in some countries, to be mixed in the feed for chickens and pigs. "
"the World has too long ignored the warning signs. An uncritical over-reliance on the pharmaceutical industry's ability to constantly develop new antibiotics when the old one no longer works, has led to a sloppy approach to antibiotics, and in many countries uncontrolled use of these important drugs. "
"at the same time, after one of the pharmaceutical companies in recent years put into research for new antibiotics. "
"the Functioning of the antibiotics must be seen as a common global resource, in the same way as clean air and clean water. It is not acceptable that some countries allow an irresponsible and unnecessary use – who consume this resource, while large population groups in other countries are left without access. "
"This approach has been indicative of the UN-appointed group of experts on antibiotic resistance who today submits its recommendations to the UN secretary-general and where we have been members. "
"the Group, which has consisted of international experts and representatives of several UN agencies have been working for two years and have agreed on a large number of proposals for new global partnerships, among other things, to increase access to antibiotics where this is lacking, to strengthen international collaborations for research and development of new antibiotics and to give priority to antibiotic resistance in development aid. "
"The report also suggests that a global management team and an independent panel of experts (similar to the intergovernmental panel on climate change IPCC) is formed, and thoughts on global agreements on the use and access. "
"Globally, we see today a continued overuse of antibiotics in healthcare and farming and the absence of long-term and sustainable investments in research and development of new antibiotics. "
"It is therefore inevitable that antibiotic resistance in the next few years will continue to reap more human lives and cause increasing social costs. If the proposals in the UN group's report is implemented, however, we are convinced that the resistensproblemet in the long term can be managed. But this requires political will and funding. And it is urgent. "
"Just as it has in the environmental field, we ask now the Swedish politicians to take global leadership for antibiotikaresistensproblemet and invest significant financial and human resources to the poor in the world to get the capacity to tackle this growing problem. "
"For their sake – but for our own, because resistant bacteria are spreading throughout the world and the problem needs to be solved globally. "
"Sweden is the leader in the world when it comes to the work against antibiotic resistance and also has many years of experience of the equal partnerships with universities and government agencies in low - and middle-income countries. "
"the uk could and should become a strong player in order to achieve a collective global responsibility for one of our greatest's fatal questions. "
"Will the world's leaders to have the ability on their own to creating the global partnerships needed to save the availability of antibiotics for current and future generations?"
"Or have a talented, responsible and insightful activist of the young generation – as Greta Thunberg – rise up to provoke politicians to take the necessary decisions?"
