A working group of international experts in pathogen genomics, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and One Health convened to take part in a workshop series and online consultation focused on the opportunities and challenges facing genomic AMR surveillance in a range of settings.
Scientists at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) are working with research partners on modelling of water quality to understand how antibiotic-resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes are transmitted in water systems. In this article, IWMI researchers Mahesh Jampani and Javier Mateo-Sagasta discuss how water quality modelling can help tackle the threat of antibiotic resistance.
In Vietnam, a hidden problem troubles the agricultural sector, particularly in chicken farming. Farmers, driven by the need to protect their animals, tend to purchase and use antibiotics without prescriptions, diagnosis or veterinary guidance.
