AMR Bulletin Volume 1 of MINISTRY OF WATER AND ENVIRONMENT

Welcome to this publication, an important
platform to talk about Antimicrobial
resistance (AMR).
This public health threat is widespread,
but action towards it remains low. It is not surprising
hearing public concerns about drugs not being
effective- and this underlines the magnitude of the
the problem we are talking about. The ineffectiveness of
antimicrobials drive people to shift to other types,
farmers have reached the level of mixing pesticides
and acaricides, but this is not only unscientific but is
also dangerous to live (human and animal) and the
environment.
As we talk about AMR in Water and Environment
sector, I implore you to pause and ask yourself Why?
Who? and What next?
