    Our team is developing a One Health surveillance system for Fiji to identify AMR hot spots. The system will help inform intervention strategies, increase national research capacity across multiple sectors, develop risk and socio-economic evaluation frameworks, recommend sustainable AMR management policies, and educate the public. This is funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security.

    Avian pathogenic E. coli (APEC) is a cause of poultry mortality and disease and poses a major economic threat to poultry farming. It may also pose a risk to human health and is linked with urinary tract infections and sepsis. As the first to provide whole genome sequence data on APEC in Australia, Ausgem has found that Australian APEC carry few antimicrobial resistance genes unlike APEC found overseas. This highlights the effectiveness of Australia’s strict regulation of antimicrobial use in agriculture.

    Intensive pig production introduces a significant number of bacteria, most notably E. coli, into the environment through pig faeces. E. coli can cause illness in both humans and livestock and poses a risk to the profitability of animal agriculture. By performing whole genome sequencing of E. coli and the other microbes frequently found in pigs, AusGEM is helping track the spread of resistance genes through agriculture, humans, and the environment.

    Antimicrobial Resistance: Science, Communication and Public Engagements (AMR-scapes) is funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant (DP170100937) to research public engagements with advice regarding the rational and reduced use of antibiotics. The project is led by Mark Davis, Andrea Whittaker, Mia Lindgren (Monash University), Monika Djerf-Pierre (University of Gothenburg and Monash University), and Paul Flowers (Glasgow Caledonian University).

    WARRA was established as an initiative out of the University of Wollongong, NSW. It aims to generate evidence on antibiotic use and drivers of antimicrobial resistance, to inform future interventions targeting the Illawarra Shoalhaven region. WARRA is comprised of researchers and clinicians specialising in molecular life science, infectious diseases, psychology, nursing, pharmacy, microbiology, pathology and research/project management.

    The National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship (NCAS) is a health services research program that aims to generate evidence on antimicrobial use and stewardship, influence national policy to promote judicious use of antimicrobials across human and animal health, and improve knowledge and build workforce capacity among all stakeholders. NCAS’ research streams include: tertiary hospitals, rural and regional hospitals, aged care homes, general practice, and veterinary and agricultural medicine.
