Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The first edition of the Special Issue “Antibiotics Use and Antimicrobial Stewardship in Remote Areas—an One Health Perspective” was published in 2020. It is a successful collection comprising 13 excellent papers and has encouraged us to open a second edition on the same topic.

As a continuation of the first Special Issue, this second edition aims to collect manuscript submissions that further our understanding of antimicrobial consumption and stewardship initiatives in remote places, highlighting clinical, cultural and geographical difficulties and peculiarities. Submissions taking into account the One Health perspective are especially encouraged.

Prof. Dr. Albert Figueras
Guest Editor
