Taking place on the 24th November, during the 'World Antibiotics Awareness Week' campaign, EU funded H2020 projects DISARM, ROADMAP, AVANT and HealthyLivestock are joining forces to share experiences and progress from the field about the challenge of antimicrobial resistance in animals. In our interactive webinar, we will share testimonials with hands-on experiences of farmers, vets and breeders on reducing AMU and demonstrate how the actions and innovative solutions of livestock sector actors tackle AMR.
Key topics include:
- AMU/AMR developments in the agricultural sector over the last 10 years and consequences of AMU/AMR in farm animals
- Different approaches and different angles to tackle AMR: at what level do we contribute?
- Experiences and progress on innovative solutions from the field
- Open floor discussion
About the Antimicrobial Awareness Week
Celebrated between 18-24 November each year, the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) aims to increase awareness of global antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers, farmers, animal health professionals and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of drug-resistant infections.
We believe it is important to make AMR a globally recognized issue with engagement of all sectors and all crucial actors (One Health approach), to raise awareness about AMR, and to encourage behaviour change towards prudent use of antimicrobials. Each action can make a difference.
