Production without medicalisation: Workshop on AMR, One Health and Aquaculture, Dhaka February 12-13th 2019

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), or the ability of microbes to resist the effects of medicines and other chemicals that are used to control them, presents a formidable threat to health and sustainable development. In particular, aquaculture is recognized as a key site for the emergence and transmission of AMR. The aims of the workshop are to: 1. To share and develop greater understanding of the key practices, disease issues and drivers of resistance risks within Bangladesh and within Bangladeshi aquaculture. 2. To engender a One Health approach to tackling AMR in Bangladesh and initiate new initiatives. 3. To discuss the utilisation of this knowledge in any public/ farmer campaign aiming to raise AMR awareness. 4. To identify data needs and approaches for future characterisation of AMR issues in Bangladeshi aquaculture.
