Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
It seems strange to call myself a “resistance fighter,” since I spend most of my life promoting peace and aiding those affected by conflict and violence. But refugees and forced migrants are highly vulnerable to antimicrobial resistance, so I pledge to inform them of this danger through ICMC’s primary healthcare and hygiene education programs. We cannot allow refugees and forced migrants to face the risk of a new threat—that of AMR. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
