GLOBAL REPOSITORY OF AVAILABLE GUIDELINES FOR RESPONSIBLE USE OF ANTIMICROBIALS IN ANIMAL HEALTH

In the context of promoting prudent use of antimicrobials under veterinary supervision, the WVA and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) conducted in 2018 a survey

to create a global repository of available guidelines for responsible use of antimicrobials in animal health.

Please find attached a list of 102 guidelines, action plans and promotional material on prudent use of antimicrobials, covering large number of countries, languages, veterinary aspects and animal species. Access to these guidelines shall serve veterinarians and other health professionals to identify best practices for antimicrobials use in animal health and to fight the development of antimicrobial resistance.

The WVA would like to thank its members that provided inputs and materials and helped to create the global repository of available guidelines for responsible use of antimicrobials in animal health.  

The WVA will continuously update this list, so if you see any information lacking, any mistakes or you would like to add guidelines to this list, please inform the WVA secretariat at secretariat@worldvet.org
