Ethnoveterinary Medicine

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is today a recognized global public health threat. The misuse and overuse of antimicrobials, particularly antibiotics, in food-animal production for non-therapeutic purposes such as disease prevention and growth promotion is known to be a driver for AMR. Globally, experts are focusing their attention on the importance of the prevention approach, which calls for adoption of measures that can reduce the need for antimicrobials for treatment, prevention or control of diseases.

To mark the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2022, Center for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a webinar on ethnoveterinary medicine (EVM) as an alternative to antibiotics for the dairy sector. The use of EVM practices is a preventative and therapeutic approach which has emerged out of India. It involves the use of traditional/herbal preparations in treating diseases of the cattle

As part of its assessment of EVM, CSE has captured the findings of one of the biggest ongoing programs on EVM in the Indian dairy sector led by the National Dairy Development Board, India. The webinar will include a panel discussion to reflect on this case study, and challenges and possibilities in scaling up EVM as an effective alternative to antibiotics in India and beyond.

Please note: This is a free Zoom webinar, and registration is open to all. All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. However, the webinar can accommodate a limited number of attendees on a first come first served basis only. Therefore, please try to join 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
