What is AMR?
AMR happens when microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites) change after exposure to antimicrobial drugs (such as antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, antimalarials and anthelmintics). As a result, these medicines become ineffective and infections persist in the body, increasing the risk of spread to others.
Microorganisms that develop resistance to antimicrobials are sometimes referred to as “superbugs”.
