It is generally recognized that control and prevention of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) requires a holistic One Health approach involving specialists from different sectors. In line with this concept, the 2nd ICOHAR aims at bringing together representatives from all relevant sectors (e.g. public health, human and veterinary medicine, livestock production, food safety and environmental sciences) to share research and education strategies for understanding and reducing the risks of AMR at the interphase between humans, animals and the environment. The programme does not only focus on zoonotic transfer of AMR but also on the numerous AMR-related challenges shared by clinicians, clinical microbiologists, infectious disease specialists and researchers working in these sectors.
