WORLD ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE WEEK 2023

Theme: Preventing Antimicrobial Resistance Together
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) poses a significant threat to global health, food safety and security, and sustainable development.
This week, as we observe World AMR Awareness Week, it’s crucial to understand the impact and take proactive steps to address this pressing issue.
What you should know about Antimicrobial Resistance:
AMR is the ability of microbes to resist the effects of medications, making standard treatments ineffective.
This phenomenon can occur naturally, but misuse of antibiotics accelerates the process.
The consequence is a diminished ability to control infections and an increased risk of the spread of diseases.
Together, let’s safeguard the effectiveness of our medicines and ensure a healthier future for all.
