Abstract:

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is not a recent phenomenon but it is a critical health issuetoday. Over several decades to varying degrees bacteria causing common infectionshave developed resistance to each new antibiotic and AMR has evolved to become aworldwide health threat. With a dearth of new antibiotics coming to market the need foraction to avert a developing global crisis in health care is increasingly urgent. The World Health Organization has long recognized AMR as a growing global health threat and the World Health Assembly through several resolutions over two decades has called upon.
