Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
I realize that the problem of AMR is much bigger than we’ve always thought. We think more about other infectious diseases without thinking about the use of antibiotics and other antimicrobials. As a public health advocate, I’m going to integrate AMR training into all forms of education platforms. Grass roots efforts will be needed to get the change in behavior that we want to promote health. It won’t be easy. It will be quite challenging and demanding, but by incorporating education into everything we do in our day-to-day activities, in any area we find ourselves, in the urban areas—we will create the platform. We are going to do it. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
