Anti-Microbial Resistance
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the ability of a microorganism
(like bacteria, viruses, and some parasites) to stop an antimicrobial
(such as antibiotics, antivirals and antimalarials) from working
against it. As a result, standard treatments become ineffective,
infections persist and may spread to others. 
Environmental Health
Is the science and practice of preventing human injury
and illness and promoting well-being by identifying and
evaluating environmental sources and hazardous agents and
limiting exposures to hazardous physical, chemical, and
biological agents in air, water, soil, food, and other
environmental media or settings that may adversely affect
human health. 
Vector-Borne Diseases
Vector-borne diseases are illnesses caused by pathogens and
parasites in human populations. Every year there are more than
1 billion cases and over 1 million deaths from vector-borne diseases
such as malaria, dengue, schistosomiasis, human African trypanosomiasis,
leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and
onchocerciasis, globally.
