Conference paper
Part of the Topics in Infectious Diseases book series (TIDIS, volume 2)


The session concerned itself with three main topics:
  1. 1.

    What is the size of the reservoir of resistant bacteria and is it universally distributed across the world?

  2. 2.

    What are the factors which go to make that reservoir?

  3. 3.

    Are there any steps that we could take to reduce the size of the reservoir?
