It is Antimicrobial Awareness Week! As a reminder to Handle with Care, we are highlighting the AMMI Canada Position Statement on antimicrobial resistance.

“Antimicrobials (which include antibiotics) are a precious public resource and an essential tool for fighting infections in both humans and animals.

Their importance to human medical, nutritional, and economic security cannot be understated.

Yet globally, antimicrobials are losing their effectiveness more quickly than new antimicrobial drugs, treatments, and therapies are being identified and introduced to market.”
