Live webinar 7 September 2022, 10.00-12.00 CEST

The development of resistance to antibiotics is a biological process, but the context that determines emergence and impact of resistance is underpinned by social aspects. Therefore, it is necessary to identify, understand and evaluate these social aspects to enable the prevention and control of AMR.

Using the One Health approach means it is vital to include social processes across human and animal health and health care, in the food production chain and in environmental protection. Questions to ask are, for example: How do farmers, vets, and regulatory systems manage livestock production? How do regulatory and fiscal frameworks incentivize or deter antimicrobial development, production, availability, and use? How do the public and healthcare professionals understand, value, and use antimicrobials?

In this webinar the members of the JPIAMR expert group on Social sciences and AMR will introduce the initiative and give examples of their work in different fields. The webinar will be moderated by JPIAMR Scientific Advisory Board member Katherine Payne.

JPIAMR is in the process of updating the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, contributing to the development of the candidate One Health AMR Partnership. This activity will support this process by allowing us to collect gaps and needs in the area of social sciences. The webinar is supported by the “CSA DESIGN OH AMR.”
