Antibiotic resistance is one of the world’s most dire public health issues as antibiotics are heavily relied on in medical practices to cure simple infections as well as utilised in surgical procedures.
Antibiotics revolutionised medicine and have saved millions of lives, even extending the average life expectancy significantly since its discovery.
On August 29, 2017, a day before Navesta’s inauguration, Navesta’s staff gathered for the company’s time capsule ceremony. Momentums from the past two years during the setup of the company were assembled and put into the containers which were buried on the company’s premises. In 25 years, the staff will hold another time capsule ceremony which they dig up the buried momentums and place additional items to be buried for the company’s 50th year anniversary.
