A workshop convened in 2018 brought experts from the Global South and North together to explore solutions to reduce the use of antimicrobials in food-producing animals in LMICs.

The valuable insights from the 63 experts across academia, industry, and the public and private sectors informed the technical scope of the recently launched initiative Innovative Veterinary Solutions for Antimicrobial Resistance (InnoVet-AMR).

Now highlights from this fascinating discussion have been captured in the special report Innovations to reduce the use of antimicrobials in food-producing animals in LMICs
