Yorkshire Terrier at the Vet

An AMR Sprint

Understanding one of the greatest threats to humans and animals alike.

Through a series of meetings we hope to create a common understanding of the scope and scale of antimicrobial resistance issues. Furthermore, we hope to highlight our potential to contribute to the companion animal component of solutions through strategic partnerships, incl. research, data, education, and private/public/NGO partnerships.

We will be exploring these issues through a variety of lenses with hopes of identifying solutions for the companion animal sector, informed by other initiatives.


Our Sprint Lenses include:

1. Preventing infections

2. Preventing the spread of resistance
3. Tracking the use of antimicrobials

4. Tracking antimicrobial resistance

5. New AMR diagnostic tests
