Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
I’m a TB survivor and was coinfected with HIV/AIDS. After multiple trips to hospitals I was lucky to be correctly diagnosed. There are several challenges—sometimes poor health systems contribute to the lack of treatment access and also patients do not follow the right treatment protocols. We need strong community support to help and support each other. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
