Antibiotics were the one of the revolutionary discoveries
of the 20th century, while their resistance has turned out
to be one of the grievous challenges of the 21st century. Dr
Pankaj Dhaka of Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal
Sciences University, Dr Deepthi Vijay of College of
Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Mannuthy, Kerala and
Dr Jay Prakash Yadav of the Indian Veterinary Research
Institute, Izatnagar, explain that, like many emerging
public health problems, the problem of antibiotic
resistance reminds us of the complete interconnectedness
of the health of humans, animals, and ecosystems. To
better understand and respond rapidly to this public
health emergency at the human–animal–environment
interface requires coordinated, collaborative, multidisciplinary,
and cross-sectoral approaches.
