ACT/ Success story from Pakistan now published!


The first in a new series of “Success Stories” has been published to promote the work of the FAO-implemented and Republic of Korea-funded Action to support implementation of Codex AMR Texts (ACT) project.

The story from Pakistan recounts the positive impacts of the awareness raising efforts about antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that have taken place at grassroots level, where livestock carers – who are mostly women – have learnt about the need for responsible and prudent use of antimicrobials in animals.

Each story in the series will take a look at a different aspect of the ACT project, which is taking a multi-pronged approach to improve monitoring and surveillance of foodborne AMR in six countries in Asia and Latin America, as well as strengthening capacities and ensuring that those on the frontline of antimicrobial use, such as veterinarians and livestock carers, understand the problem and know how to address it.

The ultimate aim of the project is to support the implementation of Codex guidelines and codes of practice that will result in better management of foodborne AMR.

The six ACT countries are: Bolivia (Plurinational State of), Cambodia, Colombia, Mongolia, Nepal and Pakistan.
