WHO Western Pacific steps up efforts to fight antimicrobial resistance

  14 October 2019

According to a statement, delegates recognized that efforts to combat AMR need to be stepped up, as so-called superbugs – bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi that have become resistant to treatment – pose an ever-greater threat to the future.
