Water is essential in the fight against antimicrobial resistance
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the world’s greatest health threats, according to a recent study published in the Lancet. The analysis, which covered more than 200 countries and territories found an estimated 1.27 million deaths attributed to bacterial AMR in 2019.
Nicolai Schaaf who leads SIWI’s work on tackling AMR says “To fight antimicrobial resistance, antibiotics manufacturing must prioritize the prevention of pharmaceutical waste polluting water.”
SIWI’s Responsible Antibiotic Manufacturing Platform (RAMP) was set up to put an end to the unsustainable practices of antibiotics production which is leading to the degradation of both human and environmental health.
