on Antimicrobial resistance
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) develops when bacteria, fungi or viruses are exposed to antibiotics, antifungals or antivirals.
As a result, the antimicrobials become ineffective and infections may persist. In addition, medical interventions including surgery, chemotherapy and stem cell therapy may become impossible.
AMR is considered the biggest global threat of Health and Food Safety.
AMR Insights informs, educates and connects professionals around the globe with the aim to curb Antimicrobial resistance.
AMR Insights is committed to eliminating antimicrobial resistance because it does not accept that millions of innocent people need to die as a result of resistant bacteria and other microorganisms.
