Antibiotics are medications that can kill or hinder the growth of bacteria which cause infections in people and animals. Antibiotic resistance occurs when there is a mutation in the bacteria's genes, however excessive use of antibiotics can also lead to the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria. In 2018, 57 percent of respondents in Belgium reported that they did not remember receiving any information about not taking antibiotics unnecessarily in the previous 12 months, this is below the European Union average at 66 percent.
