Antibiotic Protocol needed in all Indian Hospitals

Antibiotic protocols are essential in all Indian hospitals to combat the prevalent issue of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) exacerbated by antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Reports from 2023 indicate that HAIs, such as bloodstream, urinary tract, and pneumonia infections, are still common and particularly severe in low and middle-income countries, including India. This is due to the overuse and misuse of antibiotics, leading to drug-resistant pathogens. Various initiatives, like India’s National Program on AMR Containment and NARS-Net, aim to enhance infection control and AMR surveillance. Effective implementation of these protocols will reduce HAIs, lower AMR cases, and improve overall patient health outcomes.
