An AMR Sprint
Understanding one of the greatest threats to humans and animals alike.
Through a series of meetings we created a common understanding of the scope and scale of antimicrobial resistance issues. Furthermore, we highlighted our potential to contribute to the companion animal component of solutions through strategic partnerships, incl. research, data, education, and private/public/NGO partnerships.
We explored these issues through a variety of lenses and identified solutions for the companion animal sector, informed by other initiatives.
Our Sprint Lenses included:
1. Preventing infections
2. Preventing the spread of resistance
3. Tracking the use of antimicrobials
4. Tracking antimicrobial resistance
5. New AMR diagnostic tests
