Understanding the Public Health Risks of Antimicrobial Resistance

There is no doubt that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health concern. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the incidence of antimicrobial resistant infections in people has risen dramatically in recent years. It is estimated that at least 2,049,442 illnesses and 23,000 deaths in the U.S. alone can be attributed to AMR. We know that some bacteria have become more resistant than others and that certain antibiotics have become less effective than others. We also know that antibiotic misuse and overuse has greatly sped up the development of antimicrobial resistance and that the responsible use of antimicrobial drugs is important in every industry. 8.5x11 Color DS 24# stapled set\12\UCYUWMAJ201153.jpg
