The Burden of Antibiotic Resistance in Indian Neonates

The Burden of Antibiotic Resistance in Indian Neonates

This infographic shows the burden of antibiotic resistance in the the one million children who die within the first four weeks of life each year in India.  Of these deaths, approximately 190,000 are caused by sepsis, a bacterial infection that overwhelms the bloodstream.  It’s estimated that nearly one-third of these sepsis deaths are attributable to antibiotic resistance.
