Homeopathy and antimicrobial resistance

It is sometimes assumed that infectious disease has largely been conquered and the future global challenge for health services is chronic, long-term, non-communicable disease. Indeed the World Health Organisation’s projections for the evolution of the global burden of disease between 2004 and 2030 show a shift in the distribution of deaths and from infectious, perinatal and nutritional causes to non-communicable disease. But it is far too early to declare victory. HIV/AIDS remains one of the major causes of mortality in WHO’s projections, and infectious disease will be increasingly hardcore due to increasing antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
