Recent events have shown that communicable infections can have devastating effects on the body. One step to curb and prevent diseases from becoming fatal is to fight Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR). AMR is the ability of a microorganism (bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi) to stop an antimicrobial (antibiotics, antivirals, antimalarials) from working against it. As a result, standard treatments become ineffective and infections persist and spread. AMR threatens to compromise past global public health gains, advances in medicine, the attainment of the UN SDGs, and Universal Health Coverage (UHC). This paper illustrates the adverse and far-reaching effects of AMR and provides recommendations for solving the threat of AMR. It will aid medical professionals, health workers, and researchers to understand AMR and plan appropriate action at the community level.
