Antimicrobial resistance is a growing concern as bacteria resist antibiotics, making infections harder to treat. This can lead to longer, more severe infections and treatment failures. The development of antimicrobial resistance is a complex process involving genetic mutations and overuse and misuse of antibiotics. It affects human and animal health, increasing morbidity, mortality, hospital stays, and healthcare costs. Addressing antimicrobial resistance requires a multi-faceted approach, including promoting appropriate antibiotic use, implementing infection prevention measures, developing new antibiotics and alternative treatments, and improving surveillance. Antimicrobial Resistance “AMR” happens when bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites evolve over time and stop responding to medications, making illnesses more difficult to cure and raising the possibility of serious illness, death, and disease transmission.
