One Health Report on Antimicrobial Use & Antimicrobial Resistance

Creator:

Department of Health (Ireland)

Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Description:

Antimicrobials are medicines, mostly antibiotics, used to treat and prevent bacterial infections or disease in humans and animals. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) occurs when antimicrobials that were previously effective are no longer so. AMR is an urgent and growing problem worldwide, mainly due to antimicrobial overuse.

A One Health approach is needed to tackle the problem. Human, animal and environmental health is interconnected. The human health, agriculture and environment sectors must work together.

This One Health AMR Surveillance Report is Ireland’s first cross-sectoral report on antimicrobial use (AMU) and AMR in humans and animals.
