Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a global public health threat today, and one that acquires more crucial dimensions especially at a time where the world is fighting a pandemic. It is known that misuse and overuse of antibiotics in humans, animals and crops is leading to antibiotics becoming ineffective. But the problem exacerbates when critically important antimicrobials are misused and overused in food-producing animals. The need of the hour is to conserve their use. This means we have to be careful and responsible in how our food is produced. It would not only help humanhealth, but also animal-health and productivity of food systems. These lastresort antibiotics can save lives and suffering. The world cannot afford to lose them.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a webinar to discuss its latest report on “Conserving the use of critically important antimicrobials in food-producing animals: gaps and possibilities in global guidance and Indian policy framework”.
This is the first in a series of webinars on this report. We plan to discuss the gaps and possibilities in the global guidance of the Tripartite organizations (WHO-FAO-OIE) and how to move the agenda forward with global stakeholders.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a free Zoom webinar, and registration is open to all. All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. However, the webinar can accommodate a limited number of attendees on a first come-first served basis only. Therefore, please try to join 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
