Description

The effectiveness of antibiotics continues to erode because of the relentless spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Public and private foundations, professional organizations, and international health agencies recognize the threat posed by AMR and have issued calls for action. One of the main drivers of AMR is overprescription of antibiotics, both in human and in veterinary medicine. The One Health concept is a response from a broad group of stakeholders to counter the global health threat posed by AMR. In this article, we discuss current trends in AMR and suggest strategies to mitigate its ongoing dissemination. (Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.)
