At the formal launch of the project at the Best-Dos Santos Laboratory in Barbados, on Friday, July 12, Advisor, Disease Surveillance and Epidemiology, PAHO/WHO Office for the Caribbean Sub-Region, Dr. Eldonna Boisson, revealed that AMR is a threat which has the potential to be more deadly than cancer.
