    The use of antibiotics has saved millions of human lives, however consumption of antibiotics can select for antibiotic resistant organisms and may lead to changes in commensal microbiome. This study is designed to estimate the effect of antibiotic consumption on microbiome in a rural region of rural Burkina Faso. Changes in the intestinal and nasopharyngeal microbiome and resistome following a short course of antibiotics will be measured.
