International Research Consortium Studying Antimicrobial Resistance in Iceland
ARAC, Landspitali, the National University Hospital of Iceland, the Experimental Institute at Keldur, MATÍS, and the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority have formed an interdisciplinary, international consortium that will study antimicrobial resistance in Iceland, a unique and ideal location to study this growing public health threat. The consortium will undertake a national scale One Health study to advance our understanding of how antimicrobial-resistant bacteria from environmental sources, such as food and food animals, could impact human health. The project launched in November 2019. The infographics below tell you more about the project and answer the question of "Why Iceland'? Read the press release.
