Antimicrobial use by peri-urban poultry smallholders of Kajiado and Machakos counties in Kenya
A study published in Antibiotics (May 2023) has analysed the distribution and use of antibiotics, a type of antimicrobial, in peri-urban smallholder poultry systems in Kajiado and Machakos counties in Kenya.
The study was designed to provide baseline information for further work to improve antimicrobial use among the study participants.
The study is part of a European Union–funded project, Management of animal diseases and antimicrobial use by information and communication technology to control antimicrobial resistance in East Africa, designed to improve antimicrobial use monitoring and reduce the problem of antimicrobial resistance.
