T O YO KO OT TIIOI EITE?Response to the Australian Government, Department of Health and Agriculture Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy.KGOAntimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a direct result of the unrestrained use of antibiotics in humans and animals. Since the inception of penicillin in 1928 there has been steady erosion of the effectiveness of antibiotics and their ability to cure infections over the decades. It now stands to threaten modern medical infection control practices and take us back to the pre-antibiotic era. In Australia, regionally and globally the increasing number of antibiotic-resistance infections are growing at an alarming rate with new exotic bacteria organisms evolving and breaching last line of defence, drugs of choice. They are either becoming increasingly limited in their efficiency, expensive to produce and/or not available in the market, leaving Australian communities transit populations, hospitals, age care services to name a few highly vulnerable sectors to looming endemic AMR public health issues. Australia has commenced the implementation of its National Action Plan against AMR with the release of Australias First National Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Strategy 2015-2019 titled Responding to the threat of antimicrobial resistance underpinned by the National Safety and Quality Health Services Standard -September 2012 and the National Surveillance & Reporting of AMR and Antibiotic Usage in Australia - June 2013. ITOIG IO As the Managing Director of RIDOV Pty Ltd, I would like to take the opportunity to present our unique product RIDOV as a primary consideration in the fight against AMR, while offering a very real value proposition to the Australian Government, Department Health and Agriculture combined AMR national strategy plan. RIDOV is designed as a biodegradable natural antimicrobial cleaning solution proven to kill 99.99% of bacteria superbugs: Golden Staph, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE), Escherichia Coli (E.coli.) and protecting its surface environments for up to 72 hours. RIDOV has been rigorously tested over 3 years by the reputable Monash University Laboratories Micromon Diagnostics Victoria, including independent studies completed by ams Laboratories Pty Ltd Sydney NSW who has produced some very interesting public analysis report on the natural potency of our product. As part of the ongoing development of RIDOV we are currently testing for Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE). According to the Herald Sun (Victoria, Australia) 17 June 2015. The New SUPERBUG known as CRE killed two people and may have claimed the lives of up to 18 Victorians in 2015.Over the next 12 months RIDOV will be progressively test the effectiveness of RIDOV on a range of micro-organisms identified under Table 1 of Australias List of Priority Organisms for Human Health in Australias First National Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy 2015-2019 (Department of Health and Agriculture, 2015, p.18).As a result of our previous successful testing we are confident that RIDOV will yield very positive results that will deliver an effective and sustainable response to antimicrobial resistance to human health, veterinary and food producing agriculture.Underpinning the national social and health interests of Australia is the development of the World Health Assembly resolution 67.25 known as (Antimicrobial Resistance) urging countries to take immediate action at national, regional and local levels to combat AMR. Under Australias First National Antimicrobial Strategy 2015-2019 (Department of Health and Agriculture, 2015): Objective four (4) - Improve infection prevention and control measures across human health and animal care setting to help prevent infections and the spread of resistance calls for infection prevention and control (IPC) practices, such as hand hygiene, the use of personal protective equipment, equipment disinfection and Environmental cleaning are recognised as an essential part of an effective response to antimicrobial resistant(p.20)O E OOITIO TO RIDOVs value proposition is simple, it supports the cleaning, hygiene and protection of human health, veterinary and food producing agriculture. It is considered a new front line in antimicrobial easy to use TGA manufactured cleaning solution packaged in 750ml spray squirt bottles, and 5 to 20L containers with no Occupational Health and Safety and environmental impacts. It is 100% Australian designed, developed proven and tested by reputable laboratories, can be used in conjunction with microfiber and steaming replacing antiquated chemicals currently being used across the hospitals, broader health and aged care services, in schools, correctional facilities, airports, transportation- train, bus and air, commercial settings. We stands ready to meet with key stakeholder and discuss our product capability in line with national social and health of Australians. On behalf of RIDOV, I look forward to your response and future communication as we are committed to supporting the fight against Antimicrobial Resistance.
