The Secretary Administration, State Department for Livestock Development Joshua Chepchieng on behalf of PS Jonathan Mueke, today officiated the launch of the World Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) awareness week (WAAW) at Hotel Sarova Panafric, Nairobi. The gathering is a testament committed to address the most significant global health challenges of our time: Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).
The AMR threatens the sustainable growth of the Livestock Sector in ensuring food security and trade across different economies. The antimicrobials therefore will not only protect animal health but also contribute to overarching goal of AMR mitigation.
The celebration which marks the AMR awareness this week is also to acknowledge the unique governance structure of the tremendous strides through the Bottom_Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA), in empowering our Counties, our communities and our citizens.
