As the prevalence of AKI increases, so does the mounting personal and financial costs of this condition. The condition is associated with a tenfold increase in hospital mortality rates and a higher rate of chronic kidney disease among post-op patients.
Age-standardized rates of acute kidney injury hospitalizations increased by 139% (from 23.1 to 55.3 per 1,000 persons) among adults with diagnosed diabetes, and by 230% (from 3.5 to 11.7 per 1,000 persons) among those without diabetes.
Lack of resources for action against antimicrobial resistance could have an adverse impact worldwide. In 2017, the World Bank found that by 2050, annual global GDP could fall by up to 3.8% due to the effects of antimicrobial resistance. That 3.8% translates to over 3.4 trillion U.S. dollars in annual economic loss.
We’ve put together a series of resources that you can use and share with your friends, family, and colleagues to improve your knowledge of antibiotic resistance. We’ll ad new resources over the course of November, so be sure to check back regularly for updates!
