A manifesto for tackling the silent pandemic of Antimicrobial Resistance

  • Published
    16th Feb, 2023

Context:

India as the current G-20 president and a vulnerable country has a key role in ensuring that AMR remains high on the global health agenda.

Antimicrobial Resistance and Global concerns:

  • Global public health response has been threatened due to the rising misuse and overuse of antibiotics in humans and animals.
  • Microbial resistance to antibiotics has made it harder to treat infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis (TB), blood poisoning (septicaemia) and several food-borne diseases.
  • In 2019, AMR was associated with an estimated 4.95 million human deaths. A 2018 report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) warned of a phenomenal increase, by 2030, in resistance to backup antibiotics (second and third-line).
