Educating Medical Students on Antimicrobial Resistance
Antibiotics have brought about a revolution in human health. Infections that were once untreatable can today be treated easily. These medicines have saved millions of human lives. The threat of antibiotic or antimicrobial resistance has been associated with antibiotics from the very beginning. Within a few years of their introduction, bacteria became resistant to sulfonamides (a group of antibiotics). Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health and development threat and is included among the top ten threats facing humanity . Overuse and misuse of antibiotics are key factors promoting AMR. AMR can take us back to an era without effective antibiotics and place the foundations of modern medicine at risk.
