Synthesis of policies among stakeholders to combat antimicrobial resistance in livestock animals: Indian perspective
Vikash Kumar and Jancy Gupta
Synthesise the policies to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance among Stakeholders in livestock animals with sharp focus on Indian perspective.
Result and Discussion: The rapid rise in use of antimicrobial seeks the judicious extension approaches and outreach to track the decision-making among the stakeholders. Absence of synthesis and approach focussed on behavioural science resulted weak stress on practices related to judicious use of antimicrobials among stakeholders. The active participation of all stakeholders in decision making, valid veterinary-client relationship, meta-ethnography on antimicrobial themes, insight in to perceived behavioural control, addressing the descriptive norms and adequate consideration resulting wider costs and benefits (and knock-on effects) of related behaviour change can be alternative extension approaches which need insight to address the antimicrobial resistance and increase the field outreach.
Implication: Antimicrobial stewardship and social capital framework can be corpus of the grass-root research to incorporate a clear understanding of the social and economic contexts of antimicrobial usage practice and behaviours ensuring its effectiveness for policy formulations. These aspects can establish effective surveillance and feasible policies at the grass-root level for the control of antimicrobial resistance.
