The EFFORT project will investigate the epidemiology and ecology of antimicrobial resistance in food-producing animals, the (farm) environment, and food of animal origin as well as companion animals and wildlife to quantify the exposure of humans to AMR through these different exposure pathways. Studies on transmission to humans will be established for some high-risk occupationally exposed populations. The novel understanding will be used to develop and evaluate intervention strategies aimed at managing the public health and animal health risks related to antimicrobial resistance.
