The development of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in pathogenic microorganisms is a major public health threat. To prevent this from happening, we need to minimize the use of antibiotics globally.
Tackling the threat of AMR is considered critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Dutch livestock farms have already managed to reduce their antibiotic use by >90%. At our first international conference, we will share our best practices.
