A new study published in Antibiotics (May 2023) has characterized the distribution of antimicrobial resistance of Escherichia coli isolated from livestock faeces and soil in smallholder livestock systems in Ethiopia.
A new study published Antibiotics (May 2023) has documented the distribution and use of veterinary drugs in peri-urban smallholder poultry systems in two counties in Kenya.
A new study published in Antibiotics (Mar 2023) investigated bacterial contamination and the antimicrobial resistance profile of pathogens in marketed food in Bangladesh. The study also explored barriers to reducing antimicrobial resistance in the country.
A new article published in BMJ Global Health (Mar 2023) argues for an integrated One Health approach in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and on-farm biosecurity interventions to prevent and control antimicrobial-resistant infections across humans, animals, and the environment.
Increased use of antibiotics in livestock is a public health concern, as it poses risks of antibiotic residues and antibiotic-resistant pathogens entering the food chains and infecting humans. A new study in the January 2023 issue of Antibiotics has examined the knowledge, attitudes and practices of poultry farmers on the use of antibiotics in urban and peri-urban areas of Ouagadougou.
Antibiotic resistance is a global concern threatening achievements in health care since the discovery of antibiotics. In Kenya, this topic remains understudied in a context of rising demand for livestock products, intensification and the concomitant increase in antibiotic use. To shed light on this topic, a new study in Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control (Jan 2023) has investigated the drivers and practices of antibiotic use in poultry farming in Kiambu County, Kenya.
A new study in Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems (Nov 2022) describes the types of milk vendors in two Indian states, in an attempt to investigate vendors' hygienic knowledge and practices toward safety and antimicrobial resistance.
The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) has launched a new project, Selecting efficient farm-level antimicrobial stewardship interventions from a One Health perspective, that will use a One Health approach to assess which farm-level antimicrobial use interventions are most efficient to prevent the development and transmission of antimicrobial resistance in poultry in Senegal.
A stakeholder workshop was held to discuss an information and communication technology (ICT) framework for improved monitoring and control of antimicrobial use and antimicrobial resistance in livestock in low- and middle-income countries.
