The key activities include AMU monitoring workshops to understand the AMU supply chain; awareness seminars for the livestock and aquaculture industries; awareness seminars for the veterinary educations establishments (VEE); laboratory trainings on AMR surveillance; and focal point trainings for veterinary products.
