Antimicrobial Resistance is a fundamental threat to global health and safety. If we fail to address this problem quickly and comprehensively, antimicrobial resistance will make providing high-quality universal healthcare coverage more difficult if not impossible. It will undermine sustainable food production. And it will put the sustainable development goals in jeopardy

Ban Ki-moon  UN Secretary General, September 2016

 

Drugs that were once lifesavers are now worthless. Hospitals have become hotbeds for the transmission of highly resistant superbugs, increasing the risk that hospitals kill rather than heal. For a growing number of serious infections, doctors are empty-handed. The rise of resistance has vastly outpaced the development of replacement drugs. Antimicrobial Resistance is not a future threat looming on the horizon. It is here, right now, and the consequences are devastating.”

Dr Margaret Chan  Director-General of the WHO, June 2014
