The Canadian institutes of Health Research, in partnership with the UK government’s Global AMR Innovation Fund, invites proposals for its call on developing innovative veterinary solutions for the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
This supports research that will develop innovative veterinary solutions focused on product development to reduce therapeutic, and prevent non-therapeutic, antimicrobial use by farmers in developing countries, while still protecting animal health and welfare.
Research will be expected to address and understand the local contexts and realities that drive antibiotic use patterns on farms in developing countries.
