Addressing Antimicrobial Resistance Requires One Health Approach – Mind the Gap

With several recent disease outbreaks potentially having
implications of multi-species involvement, and the recent
growth in antimicrobial resistance making bacterial
diseases more difficult to treat, it is becoming increasingly
urgent that governments, inter-governmental agencies
and global health organisations redouble efforts aligned to
a ‘One Health’ approach. In this article the Royal Veterinary
College discusses how many of the research programmes
are aimed at improving health outcomes for both humans
and animals and are conducted in partnership with fellow
researchers and academics in leading institutions around
the world.
