One Health and Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

Antibiotics, drugs to combat bacteria, are useful tools in both veterinary and human medicine. They allow us to treat bacterial infections in animals and people. The problem is that all use of antibiotics kills the susceptible bacteria and leave the field open for those who have become resistant to the antibiotic.

SLU collaborates with several countries for better animal and human health. With the right knowledge and prerequisities, it is possible to improve animal health without promoting multiresistant bacteria.
