Today starts the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week that aims at improving global awareness and understanding of antibiotic resistance (AMR). Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) occurs when bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites change over time and no longer respond to medicines, making infections harder to treat and increasing the risk of disease spread, severe illness and death. As a result of drug resistance, antibiotics and other antimicrobial medicines become ineffective and infections become increasingly difficult or impossible to treat.

AMR poses a threat to humans, animals, plants and the environment, thus affecting us all. This year´s WAAW theme “Preventing anitimicrobial resistance together” calls for collaboration across sectors to preserve the efficacy of these critical medicines, encouraging the prudent use of antimicrobials, as well as strengthening preventive measures.

With health being at the center of our business, at ASPHALION, we have a keen sense of Corporate social responsibility and commitment to sustainability. Health and well-being and responsible production and consumption are two of the UN 2030 SDGs we have been working on this year in our RSC plan. Because our team´s mission is our passion: working together with our clients in order to generate ideas and implement solutions that contribute to improving health in all our lives.
