on Antimicrobial resistance
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
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 one of the biggest global threats of Health and Food Safety.
Combating AMR calls for international cooperation based on the One Health approach.
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.
