Veterinary Services play a key role in combatting the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and encouraging the prudent use and management of antimicrobial products in animals, according to the OIE Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy released by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).

The OIE AMR Strategy details four objectives and describes workplans in place and in development to support Member Countries in averting the threat of AMR. The objectives include:

  • Improving awareness and understanding
  • Strengthening knowledge through surveillance and research
  • Supporting good governance and capacity building
  • Encouraging the implementation of international standards


As part of its AMR Strategy, the OIE is developing a database to establish a global, surveillance on antimicrobial use in animals. The database is designed to:

  • Monitor the type and use of antimicrobial products
  • Measure trends over time
  • Trace circulation and use patterns globally
  • Evaluate the quality and authenticity of antimicrobial products in use
