APHA hosted visitors from the National Meat Inspection Services (NMIS) of the Philippines in the summer this year, visiting the UK FAO Reference Centre for AMR. Read more about their experiences in this guest blog.
This World AMR Awareness Week (WAAW) we have invited colleagues from the three agencies in the UK Reference Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance to share what they are doing to build AMR awareness internationally.
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a global threat to both animal and human health. In this blog, APHA’s Tom Chisnall explains what AMR is and how antibiotic resistant bacteria found in migratory birds, could affect farm livestock.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the top ten global public health threats. Read more about how APHA and partners harness their expertise to help partners located in low- and middle-income countries to develop their approach to investigating AMR and antimicrobial use.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) occurs when microorganisms no longer respond to medicines used to treat infection. Learn how APHA and partners are helping to tackle the threat of AMR in Qatar and Bangladesh.
Antimicrobial resistance, the invisible pandemic. Learn more about what has recently been described as a profound threat to global health security and how APHA is sharing our world-renowned knowledge and expertise to protect against this threat internationally.
A world without antimicrobials (including antibiotics) would lead to an increase in serious illness, death and the spread of disease. Learn how APHA are working to protect their future effectiveness and why limiting their use is vitally important.
To mark World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2020, we hear from Rod Card, APHA senior scientist for the UK FAO Reference Centre for AMR, as he talks about the work APHA and other UK government agencies have been doing to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
Over the past few months, world interest has directed towards the discovery of a novel (new) Coronavirus, coming from an animal source and escalating quickly into the human population, highlighting the importance of a One Health approach to prevent and eradicate zoonotic outbreaks. But these global, high profile cases should not overshadow endemic issues such as food-borne bacteria.
This January is One Health Awareness Month and the focus for today is antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In this blog, Rod Card explains how the Animal and Plant Health Agency in conjunction with other Defra Agencies is working to address the global problem of AMR.
