Title Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria in Schoolchildren: Need to Raise Awareness about Antibiotic Use

Subject Antibiotic resistance, Bacteria, Awareness, Schoolchildren.
 
Description Antibiotic resistance in bacteria continues to evolve and represent an ever-increasing danger in all populations, including children. Resistant bacteria are making effective treatment of common infections more and more challenging and children are especially vulnerable. Multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) on a global level in all people, including children, are associated with significant morbidity and mortality in affected individuals. In this issue, Edrees and Anbar report the prevalence and antibiotics susceptibility of Streptococcus pyogenes among schoolchildren. Recognition of this global public health threat may allow for timely strategies in prevention and treatment. A heightened awareness and targeted resources, especially those dedicated to the health of children, are essential to halt the spread of these menacing pathogens in schoolchildren.
