The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) has launched a new project, Selecting efficient farm-level antimicrobial stewardship interventions from a One Health perspective, that will use a One Health approach to assess which farm-level antimicrobial use interventions are most efficient to prevent the development and transmission of antimicrobial resistance in poultry in Senegal.

A stakeholder workshop was held to discuss an information and communication technology (ICT) framework for improved monitoring and control of antimicrobial use and antimicrobial resistance in livestock in low- and middle-income countries.
On The Boma, a podcast from the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Arshnee Moodley, team leader of the ILRI-hosted CGIAR Antimicrobial Resistance Hub, talks about what action countries need to take against antimicrobial resistance to avert a grim future, and why each country needs a different plan.
Research from the CGIAR Antimicrobial Resistance Hub was featured at 16th International Symposium of Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics (ISVEE 16) held on 7–12 August 2022 in Halifax, Canada.
The subject of antimicrobial resistance in the animal sector featured at the annual ReAct Africa and South Centre Annual Conference held on Lusaka in July 2022.
A new research paper, published in Frontiers in Veterinary Science (Jul 2022), aimed to use cognitive interviews in a respondent-adjusted way to study how survey questions related to antimicrobial use are understood and answered by 12 small-scale farmers in Kenya and Uganda.
For effective awareness raising on prudent use of antimicrobials, dairy farmers need regular education and veterinary experts need tools and strategies to educate farmers on prudent use of antimicrobials, a new research study says.
A team of researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the International Livestock Research Institute, the University of Copenhagen, Royal Veterinary College and CABI carried out a systematic literature review to consolidate the current state of knowledge on antimicrobial resistance in food crop value chains globally. The review is published in Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems (3 Feb 2022).
On November 18, the first day of World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, the CGIAR Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Hub hosted a virtual seminar addressing antimicrobial awareness. Launched in 2019 and led by ILRI, the AMR Hub is a global research and development partnership for reducing agricultural-related AMR in low- and middle-income countries.
International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the International Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Solutions (ICARS) have signed a memorandum of collaboration to strengthen activities to address antimicrobial resistance in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Through this collaboration, at the CGIAR AMR Hub ICARS will build training capacity of LMIC partners in antimicrobial susceptibility testing, establish a state-of-the art centre of excellence for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and co-develop capacity for research through exchange programmes at ILRI.
