IEE event on preventing antibiotic resistance

The Infection Ecology and Epidemiology Network (IEE) is holding a large national event in Uppsala, Sweden on 25 October.

Aimed at policy makers, researchers and the interested public, the event will highlight the need for researchers in human and veterinary medicine to collaborate with ecologists in order to understand how infectious agents function and how antibiotic resistance is developed.

The event is being arranged through the One Health campaign from the Uppsala University, National Veterinary Institute and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaboration, policies and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment.

Animals, both wild and domestic, and humans to a large extent share the same infections, viral, parasitic and bacterial, including antibiotic resistance. Vectors, like mosquitoes and ticks, often participate in the spread of infection and there is a continuous interaction between species. At the event, a thematic publication on One Health will be launched and distributed.
