AMFORA: Applying a One Health systems modelling approach to formulate strategies for mitigating the risk to human health of antibiotic resistance in Aquaculture
AMFORA is an RVC-led multidisciplinary project which aims to use a ‘systems-thinking’ approach to map aquaculture systems in Vietnam, Bangladesh and Egypt, and identify potential hotspots for the emergence and selection of resistance and human exposure to antibiotics and antibiotic-resistant organisms. This will enable the identification of potential drivers of ABU and interventions to reduce ABU.
The Network for Evaluation of One Health brings together international experts interested and experienced in One Health to promote standardised and comparable evaluations of One Health initiatives and to inform decision-making and resource allocation.
This project aims to develop a typology of interventions to reduce antimicrobial use in aquaculture, based on data extracted through a review of AMR interventions across livestock production systems.
