Antimicrobial agents may endanger all advances of modern medicine: PM Hasina
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday urged global leaders to promote and ensure rational antimicrobial agents in human health, livestock, fisheries and agricultural sectors as the silently emerging antimicrobial resistance (AMR) could endanger all the significant advances of modern medicine.
“Though the World Health Assembly resolution of 1998 decided to fight against this resistance, we’re far from reaching our goal to prevent this threat. As a result, we need to promote and ensure rational use of antimicrobial agents in human health, livestock, fisheries and agricultural sectors,” she said at the inaugural meeting of the One Health Global Leaders Group on Antimicrobial Resistance, held virtually.
Sheikh Hasina, also the co-chair of the Global Leaders Group, in her speech placed a six-point recommendation to fight the antimicrobial residence for preventing the impending catastrophe.
