Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is threatening modern medicine, creating the potential for even a routine procedure to become life threatening. A 2022 study revealed that 1.27 million deaths occurred in a single year as a result of AMR. That's 1 death every 25 seconds.

“There is no time to wait. Unless the world acts urgently, antimicrobial resistance will have disastrous impact within a generation."
