Exeter in GW4’s world-leading One Health approach to tackling antimicrobial resistance pandemic
The GW4 Alliance (Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter universities) formally launch their new ‘One Health’ antimicrobial resistance research consortium today.
The World Health Organisation cites antimicrobial resistance (AMR) as one of the most significant risks facing the world. AMR threatens global health and development as it impacts on human, animal and plant health and also our environment, water safety and food security.
The GW4 AMR Alliance has been established to tackle this global challenge and become the UK’s leading interdisciplinary ‘One Health’ AMR research consortium, recognised worldwide. The WHO defines ‘One Health’ as an approach to designing and implementing programmes, policies, legislation and research in which multiple sectors communicate and work together to achieve better public health outcomes. The ‘One Health’ approach is critical to addressing health threats in the animal, human and environment interface.
