Currently, Juan is PI of ViParc Project in Vietnam. The ViParc Project aims at helping farmers in the Mekong Delta to raise meat chickens using lower amounts of antimicrobials. Unfortunately, many Antimicrobial medicines have lost their effectiveness in treatment of human and animal diseases, because bacteria that cause these diseases have become resistant. This phenomenon is called Antimicrobial resistance, and it is of great concern worldwide. We aim to address this by conducting a farm-base trial, and will be conducted over two and half years. Since trials require a baseline period to be followed by an intervention period. The final result from the trial will be fully evaluated at the end of the Intervention period. Propose Intervention will consist of providing Veterinary support to farmers assigned to two Intervention groups during the second phase of the Study to help them improve their productivity and reduce disease, therefore reducing their reliance on antimicrobials. Farmers in Intervention groups will be supported with free training courses on Poultry Diseases and poulty farm management. They will also receive Veterinary support free of charge. In addition, half of farmers in the Intervention Group will be asked not to use antimicrobials in feed. For these farmers, we will provide advice on alternatives to control and treat disease is they appear in your flocks as result of changing feed. Because this study is designed as a trial, we necessarily need a control group so that we can appropriately compare results. This control will be a group of farms which we will not provide any of the veterinary support mentioned above. Throughout the study we will collect samples that will be investigated in laboratory for Antimicrobial resistant in enteric bacteria present in farms. In some farms, we will also investigate chickens at the end of production to investigate them for the presence of antimicrobial residues in meat. For all participating farms, we will conduct routine data collection along the production cycle of farms to help US understand: Antimicrobial usage; disease and productivity in farms; levels of Antimicrobial resistance in commensal enteric bacteria; and residues of antibiotics in meat of chickens raise. In this study we will aim to answer, among others, following questions: how do farmers use Antimicrobial medicines for their chickens and what is their knowledge about these medicines? How do chicken enteric bacteria become Antimicrobial resistant after having used antimicrobials? Does meat from chicken farms contain Antimicrobial residues? Does veterinary advice help farmers reduce disease in chicken flocks? What is the contribution of hatcheries and inadequate cleaning and disinfection to Antimicrobial resistance? This ViParc Project is led by Oxford University Clinical Resarch Unit in Ho Chi Minh City and is funded by the Wellcome Programme. The project will be implemented in Dong Thap by the Sub-Department of Animal of Dong Thap province. The project has national and international collaborators.
