Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) and OneHealth

Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) is a complex threat to sustainable development. The development and spread of AMR are expected as a natural phenomenon, however, the process has been facilitated by the antimicrobial exposure in healthcare, agriculture and the environment. The interaction between human and animal health is one such arena for the development not only of AMR, but also emerging infectious diseases. Swedesd is pursuing transdisciplinary research within the field at different levels, focusing on policy implementation and novel strategies.
