    Nguyen T. Nhung et al.
    Southeast Asia is an area of great economic dynamism. In recent years, it has experienced a rapid rise in the levels of animal product production and consumption. The region is considered to be a hotspot for infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).We reviewed English-language peer-reviewed publications related to antimicrobial usage (AMU) and AMR in animal production, as well as antimicrobial residues in meat and fish from 2000 to 2016, in the region.
  • Antibiotics and other antimicrobial agents are widely used in food animal production for disease prevention and treatment in animals, to contain disease spread, to prevent contamination of the food chain, and to increase productivity. However, their wide use in humans and animals leads to the emergence of antimicrobial resistance, a general term that encompasses antibiotic resistance. In September 2016, the United Nations recognised the global rise of antimicrobial resistance as a threat to health and human development.
  • Background Antibiotic use in human medicine, veterinary medicine, and agriculture has been linked to the rise of antibiotic resistance globally. We did a systematic review and meta-analysis to summarise the effect that interventions to reduce antibiotic use in food-producing animals have on the presence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in animals and in humans.
