Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
AMR develops when bacteria, fungi or viruses are exposed to antibiotics, antifungals or antivirals. As a result, the antimicrobials become ineffective and infections may persist. In addition, medical interventions including surgery, chemotherapy and stem cell therapy may become impossible.
AMR is considered the biggest global threat of Health and Food Safety.
For Officers at authorities, ministries, international organisations and NGO’s who wish to prevent the further global spreading of Antimicrobial resistance, AMR Insights offers selected, global information and data, specific education and extensive networking and partnering opportunities.
AMR Insights is for:
- Senior officials and (top) civil servants at national authorities
- Policy Officers at Ministries
- Civil servants at regional authorities
- Senior officials at international organizations
