  • Workshop on development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

    The antibiotics have saved millions of lives since they were first discovered. In animals, we use antibiotics for improving welfare and for enhancing the production. However, the indiscriminate use of these antibiotics has led to emergence of resistant bacteria in which antibiotics no longer work also known as antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The UK Government has established the Fleming Fund to respond to the global threat of drug-resistant infections.

    Bhutan has received the UK government-based Fleming Fund Grant to improve the diagnosis of antimicribial resistant infections with an emphasis on antibiotics, to improve data management, surveillance and to inform policies/practices at national and international levels. The grant is aimed to improve the diagnosis and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in both human and animal health sectors.Under the Department of Livestock,  National Centre for Animal Health (NCAH) is being identified as the beneficiary institute and four laboratories (National Veterinary Laboratory (NCAH); National Food Testing Laboratory (BAFRA); Regional Livestock Development Centre (RLDC) (Kanglung); and Regional Livestock Development Centre (RLDC) (Tshimasham) as surveillance laboratories for the project.
