Antimicrobial Resistance is a multi-faceted One Health problem spanning the human, animal, plant and environmental domains. Improved diagnostics are required to make better decisions affecting health and antibiotic use. The talk will discuss trends and drivers of diagnostics development, uptake and impact. As a successful example, a user-driven approach has been taken in the DOSA Project ( to improved design and uptake of diagnostic solutions in the community which address challenges in the dairy sector, aquaculture and human health.
