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.
This project seeks to facilitate the development of optimal antibiotic usage data capture mechanisms on dairy farms by understanding the drivers behind efficient data capture and their association with antibiotic usage and health and welfare. The findings from this project will be used to provide recommendations to help support the ongoing work in the development of data recording tools for the dairy industry.

China FETPV seeks to improve animal and public health using scientific and risk based approaches to the control of transboundary animal diseases and emerging infectious diseases.
Multiple research groups worldwide are currently working on the evaluation of integrated AMR surveillance. This JPIAMR funded, and RVC-led Network brings people together with the aim of harmonising and refining existing frameworks and approaches for the evaluation of AMR surveillance.
Cost-effectiveness of poultry vaccination for the control of H9N2 avian influenza virus (AIV) infection in Pakistan
This project will use a mixed-methods approach to map out the structure of the poultry industry in Pakistan and to determine the cost effectiveness and feasibility of vaccination against avian influenza in different poultry farming systems.
Does early life experience in Thoroughbreds affect injury risk and racing performance in later life?
A 3 year prospective cohort study describing management practices and reasons for early wastage in young Thoroughbreds. Risk factors for early wastage will be investigated in particular looking at associations between exercise and musculoskeletal injury and disease and racing performance in later life. The study is funded by the HBLB.
