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 Healthcare professionals who wish to prevent Antimicrobial resistance, AMR Insights offers selected, global information and data, specific education and extensive networking and partnering opportunities.
AMR Insights is for:
- Medical Microbiologists, Infectiologists and other specialists
- General Practitioners, Pharmacists
- Infection Prevention Experts and nurses
- Medical Docters and Caretakers in nursing homes
- Managers and Labtechnicians of Microbiological Laboratories.
