Abstract: Antibiotic-resistant infection, also known as superbugs are infections that no longer respond to antibiotic treatment. By now almost everyone would have heard of the increasing spread of superbug s. The impact is often described on par with the impact of climate change and at times this alarmist approach can seem like it’s all too big an issue. We will discuss with you some of the steps we are taking to tackling this ‘big issue’ of superbugs in northern Australia.
