4 Detection and control of a One Health AMR problem
Let’s look at an example of a One Health AMR problem involving transmission of AMR from animals to humans.
Example of a One Health AMR problem
Transmission of ceftiofur-resistant Salmonella enterica serovar Heidelberg (subsequently referred to as S. Heidelberg) from
You will learn:
- how it was detected through a One Health AMR surveillance system
- what contributed to the resistance emerging in chickens
- how it was transmitted from broilers to people
- a One Health approach to implementing control measures across all sectors.
This example demonstrates that AMR problems involve many factors and cannot be solved by a single approach, or one sector acting in isolation.
