A NATIONAL CENTRE FOR ANTIMICROBIAL STEWARDSHIP: USING A ONE HEALTH APPROACH
Grant number: 1079625 | Funding period: 2014 - 2020
The emergence of antimicrobial resistance is a serious worldwide problem. The National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship will use a One Health approach to address antibiotic use in both humans and animals. We will focus on hospitals, aged care, and general practice. In animal health, we will investigate links between antibiotic use in animal production and resistant bacteria, and evaluate usage in companion animals. The aim is to promote appropriate antibiotic use in animal and human health.
