AMR case study: AMR in the environment

Morrison, Donald

Authors



Abstract

The environment plays a critical role in the development, dissemination, and proliferation of AMR. There is no structural, statutory surveillance dedicated to assessing the level of AMR in the environment in the UK. Policymakers will need to support scientists’ efforts in order to sufficiently reduce AMR in the environment. This support should include dedicating more resources to research, establishing sufficient reduction targets and measures, and developing policies that encourage multi-stakeholder collaboration. Microbiologists play a crucial role in combatting AMR in the environment by investigating constant changes in the environment that promote the evolution of AMR and developing new technologies for monitoring, diagnosing, and mitigating AMR in all environmental sources.
