Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
AMR develops when bacteria, fungi or viruses are exposed to antibiotics, antifungals or antivirals. As a result, the antimicrobials become ineffective and infections in animals and humans may persist. In addition, medical interventions including surgery, chemotherapy and stem cell therapy may become impossible.
AMR is considered the biggest global threat of Health and Food Safety.
For professionals in animal husbandry who wish to prevent Antimicrobial resistance, AMR Insights offers selected, global information and data, specific education and extensive networking and partnering opportunities.
AMR Insights is for:
- Livestock breeders and animal caretakers
- Veterinarians for production animals
- Veterinarians for companion animals
- Lab technicians in contract analysis laboratories
- Veterinary regulatory authorities staff
