MUTHIA CHAIRANY G031181019 FOOD TECHNOLOGY CLASS A Article Review of: Proper protocol: On WHO’s antibiotics classification Conclusion: World Health Organisation (WHO) revised the antibiotics classes. The revision became a new step of world initiative to fight against antimicrobical resistance, as the list can stop uncorrect usage of the medicine, which may cause unresponsive microbe to some treatment. The revised WHO classification can help monitoring and regulation of drugs usage, it help a better diagnosis of patient’s demand of antibiotics and to know the antibiotics availability. As the WHO’s guidance clearly classified the drugs as “access” to first line, useable antibiotics at all time; “watch”, the second choice category; and “reserve” as the last, the most valuable and strong antibiotics. This system pinpoint the need of an all-access of essential medicines to all lines, and importantly the poor and rural patients. This system may work well if there is universal access to speed and accurate disease diagnosis in order to deploy the correct antibiotic early. While the public itself may do their own responsibility to prevent antimicrobical resistance, like hand-washing etc. Critique: As stated in the conclusion, WHO’s antibiotics classes may work well IF there is an all-access of essential medicine, and speed, accurate diagnosis in all place, for the rich and the poor, and the urban people and the rurals. Which means, it need a strong and determined regulation to make the medication accessible for all people. In Indonesia, access for those facility haven’t reach all public line. Most of the problem happened due to expensive treatment cost and far, unreacheable public health care. Even if it’s not costly and still accesible, some of the public health facility does not meet the health care standards. It cause a slow treatment progress or even they are not capable to treat the disease. Firstly we need to fix the financial problem and health access for the rurals places, such as the border areas. And importantly we need to implant a good health education for all people, as well as widespreading the new antibiotics classes for all health practitioner. Those solution may applied if the government make a strong regulation, applied it and determined to solve the antimicrobical resistance. We need to increase the medicine distribution control to spread it evenly and manage the cost. More importantly, there is a need to improve the health practitioner quality and the facilities of the healthcare places. These process may need a long time to give a good result, but as long as we keep trying and determined to do it, there will come the time when medication is not just a dream for the poor, and a healthy community may developed in all places, especially in Indonesia, at the medicinal resistance field.
