Other speakers will address the unique challenge of developing and interpreting veterinary diagnostic tests. The next group of speakers will discuss antimicrobial stewardship, particularly in challenging settings such as nursing homes, rural and remote areas, and low- and middle-income countries, as well as the challenges and incentives for stewardship in animal agriculture.
