Queensland AMR Hub to tackle antimicrobial resistance
The COVID-19 pandemic has awakened the world to the dangers of zoonotic infectious diseases impacting human health. Another major challenge to human health is Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) – bacteria that cannot be treated by antibiotics. To tackle this problem a ‘One Health’ approach which recognises the contribution of humans, animals, plants and the environment to AMR is required.
