Antimicrobial resistance in Ethiopia: A systematic review and meta-analysis of prevalence in foods, food handlers, animals, and the environment
Antimicrobial resistance is one of the greatest global threats to human and animal health. This review examined the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance in the animal-source food chain in Ethiopia, with a focus on antimicrobial resistance in bacterial species isolated from food handlers, live animals, foods (animal origin and non-animal origin), and in environmental samples. The information was then used to estimate the pooled prevalence of antimicrobial resistance in the different sources. The findings will be useful in providing evidence to inform effective One Health interventions to reduce antimicrobial resistance in Ethiopia.
