Health professionals are on the front lines of the antibiotic resistance crisis, seeing patients with infections that were once easily treatable turn into dangerous and sometimes deadly illnesses. That’s why more than 50,000 of them have joined our campaign to raise the alarm about this public health threat.
The Health Professional Action Network is a group of physicians and health experts who are trained and ready to be our voice in the media, in state capitols, and wherever we need to counter misleading claims or advocate for new solutions. By utilizing their expertise, we are encouraging influential stakeholders to adopt better antibiotic stewardship practices to protect public health and preserve these life-saving medicines. Already, the Health Professional Action Network has made a difference in advocating for strong state legislation and actions from major food companies to restrict routine antibiotic use in the meat supply chain.
