Antimicrobial resistance is simple to understand, yet it is often misunderstood.
Antimicrobial resistance is simple to understand, yet it is often misunderstood. Because antimicrobial resistance has no single solution, it must be fought on many fronts. This webinar seeks to raise awareness, share experiences and knowledge on AMR in aquaculture – where the use of antimicrobials has been increasing – to better understand the challenges and help boost the global effort to lessen the use of antimicrobials. The race to do so is urgent. Consider 700 000 are killed every year by drug-resistant infection and the cost in terms of increased resistance is borne by society as a whole. FAO experts will give an update on the global work to address AMR in aquaculture and an overview on AMR in the Asia-Pacific region. Experts from China and India will share country experience on mitigation of AMR. An expert from NACA, a regional IGO, will describe the gaps and challenges, and outline policy recommendations on mitigating AMR and promoting the prudent use of antimicrobials. This webinar will also explore ways to improve governance and enhance support to national action plans on AMR under the One Health approach.
