Antimicrobial Resistance Is a Serious Threat To Public Health in India
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), brewing unnoticeably for the past couple of decades, has now evolved into a potential public-health emergency on the cusp of threatening our medical fraternity in the near future. India has one of the highest incidences of bacterial infections in the world, including in the form of typhoid, cholera, pneumonia, tuberculosis, etc. AMR happens when fungi, parasites, bacteria, etc. evolve and stop responding to medicines meant to kill them. As such, this phenomenon threatens to wipe out gains made over decades of scientific innovation and medical advances – if it isn’t prevented and managed effectively and on priority.
