This figure comprises a line graph showing antibiotic use in China and India between 2000 and 2015. The horizontal axis is labelled year and is marked from 2000 to 2015 in 1-year intervals. The vertical axis is labelled standard units per 1000 population and is marked from 0 to 12000 in intervals of 2000. Antibiotic use in India is shown in orange. Antibiotic use in China is shown in blue. The orange line slopes very gradually upwards from left to right. The blue line remains relatively constant between 2000 and 2011 and then slopes steeply upwards.
