WHO announces the members of the first Taskforce of AMR Survivors
The World Health Organization has announced the members of the first Taskforce of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) survivors. The members of the Taskforce will serve as champions who can help shape the AMR narrative globally and influence policies that affect AMR. They will also contribute to improvements in AMR messaging so that the ‘human face’ of AMR is presented alongside messages that increase awareness of AMR.
The Taskforce is constituted of people who have survived drug-resistant infections themselves or cared for those with serious drug-resistant infections. The Taskforce has representation from those who were affected by drug resistant bacterial, tuberculosis, HIV and fungal infections.
