Antimicrobial resistance is a growing threat to both human and animal health. Researchers in Europe and worldwide are investigating new approaches to tackle the problem. Pathogens are less likely to become untreatable if antimicrobials are used responsibly.
HealthyLivestock project contributes to fighting antimicrobial resistance (AMR), by reducing the need to use antimicrobials in pigs and poultry. Strengthening biosecurity, enhancing animal resilience, early disease detection methods, and more targeted medication will help to decrease antimicrobial use and consequently reduce antimicrobial resistance. HealthyLivestock brings together Chinese and European experts and allows them to work together in a large research project.
