Minnesota One Health Antibiotic Stewardship

Minnesota One Health Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative

What is One Health Antibiotic Stewardship?

Antibiotics are powerful tools for fighting and preventing infections. However, widespread use of antibiotics has resulted in an alarming increase in antibiotic-resistant infections. Antibiotic stewardship consists of coordinated interventions that promote judicious antibiotic use and reduce the impact of antibiotic resistant pathogens. A One Health approach recognizes that human, agricultural and companion animal, and environmental health are interconnected, and issues such as antibiotic stewardship require a collaborative effort across multiple disciplines. We believe that a One Health approach will create an informed public and professionals that can communicate, and practice a more holistic approach to antibiotic stewardship.
