Antibiotic resistance has become a threatening force for the world’s progress in healthcare and life expectancy. Intermountain has committed to take action in the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Challenge, a yearlong effort to bring awareness and accelerate the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
Our use of antibiotics is essentially preventing antibiotics to be effective for the next generation. That's why Intermountain has established antibiotic stewardship teams to help prevent drug resistance in the future.
