Abstract: Description: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has assumed serious proportions. The life-saving impact of antimicrobial agents, as well as considerable economic benefits, are being negated by increasing resistance to these "wonder drugs". AMR can be minimized by collective action by all - physicians, health administrators, regulators, manufacturers and the general public, especially patients. These FAQs explain in simple terms the reasons for the emergence of AMR and possible mechanisms by which it can be prevented and contained.
