Antimicrobial Resistance – A One Health Approach to a Growing Problem
Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. One Health is a research perspective that considers the health of animals, humans and the environment as a single, integrated whole. The growing concern associated with antimicrobial resistance is that it threatens human and animal health. This seminar will highlight what we know and what we can do to work together using a One Health approach to this critical global health threat.
