Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global public health threat. The rising prevalence of drug resistance challenges modern medicine by limiting life-saving therapeutic options. Left unaddressed, AMR could make major surgeries impossible, and people would routinely die from previously treatable infections.
OHT’s work takes on multiple dimensions of the AMR challenge: closing knowledge gaps, explicating the complexity of the issues, advocating for vaccination and infection prevention control to prevent illness and reduce demand for antibiotics, and supporting the appropriate use of antibiotics through stewardship and evidence-based treatment guidelines.
