Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance is the ability of a microorganism to tolerate antimicrobial treatments. It is a problem in Africa, due to the very fact that folks are susceptible to infections and that they have an enormous appetite for antibiotics because they believe it is a robust medicine that results in high consumption rates. Knowledge of local and regional antimicrobial resistance is vital for deciding. However, surveillance capacity for antimicrobial resistance is lacking throughout sub-Saharan countries and current antimicrobial resistance data are sparse. This review sought to deal with this gap by summarizing, assessing, and documenting all available data on this public issue within the sub-Saharan countries for the reader. Data for this review were collected from an on­line database. Searches were conducted using one health, antibacterial, policies, regulation, antimicrobial resistance, and sub-Saharan countries as a keyword by inserting into search engines. One health approach collaborating with other stakeholders, and regulatory agents working together to optimize the health of animals, humans, foodstuffs, and the environment by combating antimicrobial resistance. Thus, the implementation of one health approach, and regulatory perspective in combating antimicrobial resistance should be critically recognized as a framework for addressing this global issue. Therefore, the target of the present seminar was to review the one health approach, and regulatory perspective in combating antimicrobial resistance in sub-Saharan countries.
