The Australian Government has published the Final Progress Report for Australia’s First National Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy 2015–2019 detailing its efforts to limit the incidence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Australia.
The report highlights activities implemented between 2017 and 2019 in the human and animal health, food production and the environment.
Looking ahead, the Australian Government last year announced more than $22.5 million over four years in the 2020–21 Budget to implement an effective strategic framework for addressing AMR.
Botanix supports all efforts by the government and industry to address this pressing global health emergency. We are proud to be doing our part in the development of our BTX 1801 antimicrobial platform program too – most recently, we published world-first human data showing that our synthetic CBD-based ointment/gel formula can effectively eradicate Staphylococcus Aureus.
