A GCRF Challenge Cluster project to synthesis the learnings of Global-south based interventions using Community Engagement methods to tackle AMR.
This project engaged livestock-keeping households in Indian slum communities and rural Kenyan pasturelands. Both were previously involved in research on animal health which yielded long-term datasets on AMR-related behaviour which the project team intended to use as a tool to forecast AMR emergence.
