" “The thoughtless person playing with penicillin treatment is morally responsible for the death of the man who succumbs to infection with the penicillin resistant organism. I hope the evil can be everted.”
Sir Alexander Flemings' foresight foretold the emergence of AMR. It would seem that the achievements in antimicrobial therapy and treatment of infections over the past century are being threatened. It is inconceivable that the milestones and advancements in medicine, surgery, treatment of cancers that has been possible through the use of antibiotics are at the mercy of AMR.
I am really excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I believe the skills I will gain from the programme will make me better equipped in my advocacy on not just AMR, but in climate change, public health education and preservation of species and natural habitats. Indeed these are core component of the Sustainable Development Goals. It is my hope to meet like-minded people who I can work with and exchange ideas on how to see that our future and those of the generations after us is secured. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, the deficits of our health systems has never been more obvious. There is a lot of work to do, and I do not know how far I can go. The Millennium Fellowship offers a lot of potential to youths as we strive to change our narratives and realities. "
