Millennium Fellowship Project: Prevalence study of antimicrobial usage on Live Bird Markets
The use of antimicrobial in poultry industry for a sustainable industry has resulted to selection of resistant organisms which could potentially spread to humans via consumption resulting to high morbidity and mortality associated with reduction in the effectiveness of standard live saving antimicrobial drugs used for treatment of human infections. So a survey will be carried out using a questionnaire to estimate the awareness of this live bird sellers about antimicrobials and its resistance and how it can also prolong the treatment of diseases in poultry and humans. Also to understand the reasons behind the indiscriminate usage of this antimicrobials by the live bird sellers I.e what is influencing the use of antimicrobials. Also this survey will help in providing baseline for efficient development of educational programs and policy interventions that promote judicious antimicrobial use among live bird sellers.
