Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
I am a microbiologist and my role to help fight antimicrobial resistance is very important. In my laboratory, we are trying to avoid the spread of multi-drug resistant microorganisms and this is a challenge as the problem of multi-drug resistance is rapidly growing. We are on the front line as we identify the resistant organisms and help prevent critical problems in patients. My main priority in the fight against AMR is timely diagnosis and reliable treatment which can prevent the death of many patients. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
