Supporting Evidence-Based Policy

Project Summary

This project takes an interdisciplinary approach to examining One Health aspects of AMR in India and Kenya, combining social, biological and environmental sciences. Through qualitative data collection and environmental sampling, we have explored drivers to the emergence of AMR among two livestock-dependent communities: Maasai pastoralists in Kenya and subsistence dairy producers in India. This data underpins an online decision-support tool created specifically for policy-makers and practitioners, to assist them in identifying the most effective interventions to prevent the emergence and spread of AMR. We have also collaborated with local illustrators to create educational comics for schoolchildren, raising awareness around AMR.
