Abstract

With over 200 zoonotic diseases and the emergence of antimicrobial-resistant (AMR) microbes, a substantial threat looms over public health. If we are unable to cope with AMR, it suggests a potential of 10 million global fatalities by 2050. The evolving landscape of AMR transcends geographic boundaries and species, necessitating collaborative and multidisciplinary efforts. The interplay between humans, animals, and the environment highlights the profound significance of One Health in addressing these interconnected challenges. The imperative of multidisciplinary efforts to safeguard the health and well-being of our shared world, comprised of humans, animals, and the environment, can pave the way toward success. The role of surveillance, education, and public awareness in combating AMR and fostering responsible antimicrobial use is inevitable in addressing this global concern.
