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.

See and Sequence: Integrating Whole-Genome Sequencing Within the National Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Program in the Philippines
National networks of laboratory-based surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) monitor the emergence and spread of resistance and are central to the dissemination of these data to AMR stakeholders. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) can support these efforts by pinpointing resistance mechanisms and uncovering transmission patterns.
Stay tuned with remarkable global AMR news and developments!
