AMR is a known as a One Health problem because it impacts upon human, animal and environmental health. COSTAR will take an holistic, One Health approach.
Our formative research will engage communities to consider how behaviours linked to animal and environmental issues impact on AMR. We will then use these findings to inform our materials, intervention development and evaluation.
Achieving a One Health approach
The COSTAR team will share their specialist knowledge as part of our capacity building strategy. This, combined with community knowledge, will ensure that we develop interventions which capture the breadth of AMR challenges across the One Health sphere, and focus on the contextual issues of the regions in which we are working.
