Infectious pathogens in bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites naturally evolve over time. As they do, they can develop antimicrobial resistance (AMR) to available medicines. When this happens, antibiotics and other antimicrobial medicines lose efficacy and these infections become more difficult to treat, increasing the likelihood of disease spread, severity, and death.
