ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE (AMR)

When was the last time you took ANTIBIOTICS ?

What were they given for?

Was it necessary?

Always think of these questions when requesting/ taking antibiotics.


Taking Antibiotics when not necessary is not good for you and your family.

Antibiotics are medicines used to prevent and treat bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria change in response to the use of these medicines. Bacteria, not humans, become antibiotic resistant. These bacteria may then infect humans and are harder to treat than non-resistant bacteria.

In short: overuse causes resistance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
is a broader term, encompassing resistance to drugs to treat infections caused by other microbes as well, such as parasites (e.g. malaria), viruses (e.g. HIV) and fungi (e.g. Candida).
