Veterinarians have embarked on a five-year plan to address the serious challenges and shortcomings in tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the Asia-Oceania region.

Federation of Asian Veterinary Associations (Fava) president Datuk Dr Quaza Nizamuddin Hassan Nizam said that the plan was to empower veterinarians in the region to fulfill their roles on the ‘Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (GAP-AMR)’.

“We recognise these challenges and shortcomings when implementing the ‘National Action Plans’ in each country, concerning AMR.

“Hence, the ‘FAVA AMR Strategy 2021-2025’ plan is to tap on the potential contributions that veterinarians can make to move these plans forward.
