Join this webinar with focus on the situation in the livestock sector in low-income countries. The Livestock Antimicrobial Partnership (LAMP), hosted by SLU Global, introduces a group of very qualified experts within their respective field that will present and discuss various aspects of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The emergence of AMR is a true “One health, One world” challenge. However, the challenges as well as the actions to be taken for fighting the emergence vary a lot over the world. For instance, the access to antimicrobials vary by locations and the legalisation and its enforcement differ between countries as do awareness of the issue. In this webinar we focus on the situation in the livestock sector in low-income countries.
