Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

Center for Science in the Public Interest

The Center engages in advocacy on public issues such as nutrition, food safety and health, of which antibiotic resistance is a part. The site tackles the overuse of antibiotics in livestock, including animals' treatment with antibiotics also used by humans.

It also has information directed at the general public — such as advice on when antibiotics are necessary, which common illnesses are caused by bacteria and which by viruses; and also tells people they shouldn’t demand antibiotics from their doctor.
