    Using antimicrobial drugs in terrestrial and aquatic animals is critical to both health and productivity. It contributes to food safety and animal wellbeing, and in turn to protecting the livelihood and sustainability of animal production. There is a growing concern that resistance to antimicrobial drugs, including antibiotics, will reverse the achievements of food safety and animal health. It is important that these drugs remain available and effective in animal health and agriculture. Animal health workers play a role in veterinary extension and livestock production services. He or she provides preventive animal health care, help in animal disease control, biosecurity promotion, and basic first aid services to farm animals, however many of them do not have neither practical guidelines nor access to training on antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial use. The Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases, FAO Viet Nam, has provided various training programmes to animal health workers, in collaboration with the Department of Animal Health. Our experience has shown that animal health workers are a part of the solutions for responsible antimicrobial use and mitigation of antimicrobial resistance. This handbook, therefore, aims to provide first-hand knowledge on antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial use, serving as a practical guideline for animal health workers to gain a better understanding and advocate them to promote responsible antimicrobial use among animal producers and animal drug sellers and ultimately reduce antimicrobial resistance.
