Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

Antimicrobials are drugs used to treat infections in humans and animals. Antimicrobials work by killing micro-organisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc.) or stopping the growth of micro-organisms that cause infections. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) occurs when micro-organisms that cause infections adapt and prevent an antimicrobial from working against it. The aim of this website is to explain what AMR is, and actions that can be taken to prevent AMR.
