Emerging resistant microbes in Nigeria

  12 June 2019

Antimicrobial resistant (AMR) is now where HIV was in the early 80s when most Countries were in denial, and hoped that they could wish it away, and yet HIV turned out as it is. When we realise that AMR is now a major threat to public health that we can’t wish away, the vital question becomes; what do we do about it – Dr. Lawal Bakare, CEO EpidAlert Informative Initiative.

Dr Lawal said this while addressing the audience at the first-ever Infectious Diseases Indaba held in Lagos on the 7th of June, 2019, on the need for everyone to not only commit to the AMR Challenge but to also act upon their commitments.
