The surveillance of antibiotic consumption (AMC) and antibiotic resistance (AMR) in humans and animals is vital for tacking AMR problems. Furthermore, policy decisions need to monitor the trends of AMR in bacteria along the food chain. Therefore, the surveillance of AMC and AMR in humans and animals needs to integrate data and engage data for the use of information in the management of AMR problem.
Recently, Thailand’s One Health Reports on AMC and AMR published in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020, the first ever published report in Asia, have contributed significantly to evidence-based policy decisions. This report will provide progressive reports of AMC and AMR in humans, animals, and meat products in Thailand using a One Health approach, however, several limitations remain. In Thailand, the National Strategic Plan on AMR (NSP-AMR) was established and endorsed by the Cabinet resolution in 2016. In response to the NSP-AMR, the Health Policy and System Research on Antimicrobial Resistance (HPSR-AMR) network was established by the International Health Policy Program, in collaboration with researchers from several public and private institutes, and universities in 2015. The aim of the network is 1) to conduct health policy and systems research related to AMR in Thailand and support evidence-informed policies, 2) to engage and collaborate with stakeholders and partners on the HPSR-AMR network, and 3) to strengthen individual and organizational capacity in research on AMR.
In addition. to communicate key information to multi-stakeholders, data visualization would help to show an efficient presentation of interesting data through graphical means. A dashboard has been used in some countries to show analytics, trends, and summaries of the data in a web application using various charts and diagrams. However, only a few dashboards provide comprehensive information containing both consumption and AMR profiles in humans and animals. The integrated information on the dashboard can provide an overview of AMR information and illustrate a number of key metrics regarding AMR to inform policy decisions. All data contained in the dashboard aligns with “Thailand One Health Dashboard on Antimicrobial Resistance” on www.thaiamrwatch.net.
The website and dashboard were including 1) Highlight data, proposed key results on antimicrobial consumption, antimicrobial resistance, and knowledge and awareness on antibiotic use and AMR, 2) Main dashboard, including details of data from Thailand’s One Health report from 2017 to current data. 3) News and events, including network information, 4) Material, including seven types of material such as Article, Book (Thailand One Health report), Brochure, Highlight report, Policy brief, Project report, and Technical brief. 5) Members, 6) About us including history and timeline of HPSR-AMR network, and 7) Contact us.
Objective: To launch Website and Thailand One Health Dashboard on Antimicrobial Resistance dashboard
