According to the Swiss Antibiotic Resistance Strategy (StAR), an integrated approach to the One Health  principle regarding people, animals and the environment is necessary for preserving effective antibiotics. For  example, antibiotics and other microscopic impurities in the water should be significantly reduced by improving waste water treatment plants. Research also plays an important role by filling the gaps in our knowledge about antibiotic resistance.
