In other news:

  • The website had undergone some changes to capture research publications and improve navigation. We added an extra feature to push all articles to social media platform via twitter. Twitter feed shows that articles tagged to respective organizations, donors and partners received more attention. We encourage this as it brings added awareness to the partner community about the AMR hub.
  • Supported the free online course by Future Learn and SLU on Effective Livestock Production with Low Use of Antibiotics via social media.
