Overview

The underlying purpose of this consultation event is to examine the direct and indirect benefits and risks to human health from livestock, including its impact on the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The event will aim to identify opportunities for collaborative action to resolve any contentious issues and will include experts from the animal and human health sectors, trade and commerce, governments and international organizations such as WHO, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), and the World Bank. Possible outcomes include contributing to the development of new One Health partnerships to combat AMR including a working group arising from participants at the event, and expanding and improving existing mechanisms for global One Health collaboration across the livestock arena.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
