Implementing Measures for the Prevention of Antimicrobial Resistant (AMR) ‘Superbugs’ – at a Local and National Level

The emergence of ‘superbugs’ or AMR bacteria is becoming a major concern in Nepal. Understanding AMR through rigorous surveys and analyses has become very important, as the threat to animals and humans has been increasing.

CMDN is building a genetic-based AMR profiling, including building capacities to detect and screen a broad spectrum of AMR bacteria. This will aid in comparative AMR gene profiling and surveillance of AMR in humans and animals in the near future.
