Antimicrobial Resistance Control
Microorganisms, such as bacteria and viruses, are increasingly becoming resistant to the drugs we use to kill them (antimicrobials). This problem, known as antimicrobial resistance (AMR), is a grave threat to human, animal and environmental health. In humans, AMR prolongs illnesses, increases the risks of death, facilitates transmission and increases treatment costs. In Africa, AMR is already a problem for malaria, tuberculosis, HIV and many other infectious diseases.
