Today, October 25th, a new ambitious and ground-breaking project is launched: HealthyLivestock. Internationally renowned experts and scientists from the European Union and China will work together to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Academia, research institutes, private partners and companies decided to join forces for a better health and welfare of pigs and poultry. A key pillar of the project is disease prevention. This combined, in case still necessary, with prompt and targeted interventions, will result in a reduced use of antimicrobials and less AMR: a clear win-win for animals and people.
