Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a crucial multifactorial and complex global problem. In human and veterinary medicine, it has reached an alarming level in most parts of the World. It has been now recognized as a significant emerging threat to global public health. To address those issues, an online workshop on “Antimicrobial Resistance in Livestock Sector in Bangladesh” will be started tomorrow which organize by the Department of Livestock Services (DLS) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) under the World Bank funded Livestock and Dairy Development Project (LDDP).
At present, it is our utmost need to develop a practicable approach to contain the problem of AMR to uphold public health nationally and globally. The first day of the workshop will focus on sharing international best practices on integrated AMR surveillance and monitoring by well-known regulators. The second day will aim at having a moderated discussion among stakeholders involved in AMR surveillance and monitoring within the livestock sector and food of animal origin. Government high officials, National experts and International experts of UNIDO, Academia, Scientists, Entrepreneurs and Policy Makers will be participated in this webinar.
