Akdağ said: " The unnecessary use of antibiotics has negative impacts over both users and the society.
“Bacteria become more resistant. Ultimately, antibiotics fail when we need them most to work on bacteria which cause severe pneumonia, meningitis or other severe diseases with germs circulating in our blood. This is a problem for the whole society. We distributed our physicians a computer program which guides them about clinical findings in assessing patients for beta existence. I believe that, with this new system, Turkey will overcome this problem and become a model for the world in rational use of drugs, just like we did with the Health Transformation."
