Antimicrobial resistance occurs naturally over time due to changes at the genetic level of microorganisms. These microorganisms are present in food, animals, plants, humans, and the environment. Many pathogens can spread from people to people or from animals to humans. Some of the major drivers of the development of antimicrobial resistance are misuse (overuse, inappropriate selection and/or dosing, etc.) of antimicrobial agents, poor infection and disease management, lack of access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene for the people, poor access to affordable and quality drugs and diagnostics, lack of awareness and knowledge about health care, etc.
