Antibiotic Resistance Competition 2018: congratulations to all winners!

09 Oct 2018

Antibiotics are critical for human and animal health, and it is not an exaggeration to state that they are one of a few critical discoveries that have improved human health dramatically in the past century. Yet, their use in humans and animals are not without risks and trade-offs. As with all medicines, there is a potential risk of adverse effects in humans (and animals), and antibiotic resistance—a natural consequence of increasing use of antibiotics—is considered by the World Health Organization as one of the greatest threats to global health today.

To raise awareness of the issue of antimicrobial resistance, the Antibiotic Resistance Competition 2018 was jointly organised by SSHSPH, Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Singapore General Hospital. The competition was funded by the Antibiotics Awareness Fund, a charity fund set up in October 2016 at the National University of Singapore.

The School would like to congratulate the winners of the competition and thank all students for their participation.
