# AMR Advocacy Script

# Introduction
print("Hello, everyone! Today, I want to talk to you about a pressing global health issue that affects us all - Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).")

# Define AMR
print("AMR occurs when bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms become resistant to the drugs we use to treat infections. It's a growing threat to public health worldwide.")

# Statistics
print("Here are some alarming statistics:")
print("- Over 700,000 people die each year due to drug-resistant infections.")
print("- If left unchecked, AMR could cause 10 million deaths annually by 2050.")

# Consequences
print("AMR not only leads to higher mortality rates but also affects medical procedures like surgeries, cancer treatments, and childbirth, as these rely on effective antibiotics.")

# Why Advocate for AMR
print("Advocating for AMR is crucial. Here's why:")
print("- We need new antibiotics and better diagnostics to combat resistant infections.")
print("- We must ensure responsible use of antibiotics in healthcare and agriculture.")
print("- Education and awareness can help prevent overuse and misuse of antibiotics.")

# Call to Action
print("So, what can we do?")
print("1. Educate ourselves and others about AMR and the importance of responsible antibiotic use.")
print("2. Support research and development of new antibiotics and alternative treatments.")
print("3. Advocate for policies that promote responsible antibiotic use and surveillance of resistance.")
print("4. Encourage healthcare providers to follow best practices for antibiotic prescribing.")
print("5. Get involved with local and international organizations dedicated to AMR advocacy.")

# Conclusion
print("In conclusion, Antimicrobial Resistance is a serious global threat, but with awareness and action, we can slow its progress. By advocating for AMR, we can protect our health and the health of future generations.")
