Resistencia a los antimicrobianos

Webinar series: Antibiotic use in poultry in relation to AMR of Salmonella in Nepal


As part of the FAO knowledge dissemination dialogues on antimicrobial resistance (AMR), Narayan Paudyal from the National Animal Health Research Centre of Nepal shared his research results on how antibiotic use in the poultry sector contributes to increasing resistance of pathogens like Salmonella and E. coli. This was the first research of such a kind in Nepal.

“Our research identified a high level of resistance to antibiotics commonly used in Nepalese poultry production. Farm/husbandry practices were major contributing factors leading to AMR in Nepal,” said Narayan Paudyal during the webinar.

During the questions and answers session, Paudyal also shared their experience and insights about the use of antibiotics, why the frequency of use is increasing, and what has been done to improve animal husbandry practices at the farm level. He also talked about collaboration with different entities in Nepal. 

Nepal is one of the FAO “Action to support implementation of Codex AMR Texts (ACT)” project countries (together with Bolivia, Cambodia, Colombia, Mongolia, and Pakistan) that work to minimize and contain foodborne AMR.
