Antimicrobial Resistance: A Global, One Health Concern
7 November 2019

AMR is a One Health issue, and it is possible that human and animal waste can spread resistant bacteria in the wider environment.

Infections caused by AMR-bacteria can increase the risk of spread of infection to communities and livestock and result in longer duration of illness, higher mortality rates, and increased costs of alternative treatment.
