South Africa has a high burden of infectious diseases, including
a large portion that are of bacterial origin. This section reviews
the national burden of disease and levels of antibiotic resistance
in common bacterial infections in the human population. The
consequences of resistance on clinical outcomes, through either
treatment failures or the development of more virulent infections, are
largely unknown. The full impact of antibiotic resistance on health in
South Africa therefore remains to be assessed.
