Working Together to Find Solutions

In this video, Hendrik Donker suggests a joint effort between the government and healthcare professionals is needed to fight antimicrobial resistance.

In this video, Hendrik Donker discusses how a collaborative effort between healthcare professionals and the government is needed to prevent antibiotic resistance. He highlights how human health is interlinked with both animal health and the environment.

The public must be made more aware of the risks of antibiotics and how they can help prevent the need for them. Hendrik Donker goes on to suggest ways this could be done in a dentistry setting, such as by providing information to new parents about how eating well and visiting the dentist from a young age is beneficial for children. He uses the Dutch government as an example of how a country’s leadership can come together and tackle the problem of antibiotic resistance on a national scale.
