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 Children and their Carers who wish to know more on Antimicrobial resistance, aim to set up child-oriented activities to increase the awareness on AMR or otherwise will be involved in preventing Antimicrobial resistance in children, AMR Insights offers selected, global information on activities, specific education and extensive networking and partnering opportunities.
AMR Insights is for:
- Carers and parents
- Organizers of AMR events for children
