Vidya Mave, MD, MPH, of Byramjee-Jeejeebhoy Government Medical College in India and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and colleagues reported that India is among the countries with the greatest burden of bacterial disease in the world. However, there are limited data on antimicrobial resistance in inpatient and community settings in the country, where antimicrobial use is common and has substantially increased over the past 2 decades, according to the researchers.
