ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the growing problem on drug resistant microorganisms. She mentions that the problem is rooted on limited diagnostics and lack of research, and argues that diagnostic tests for antibiotic resistance should be cost-effective, reliable, and timely. She adds that improvements on resistance detection, laboratory capacity optimization through networking, and training on quality control and standard procedure on laboratories to meet the national standard are important.
