The aim of this REA is tol review evidence to respond to the following primary question:
What pathways are most responsible for disseminating ‘resistance’ from the aquatic environment into humans?
And the secondary questions:
- What are the factors affecting the transmission of AMR and ARGs from the water environment into humans? E.g. exposure times and frequency, physical conditions in the environment, etc.
- To what extent does the transfer of genes play a role in the spread of resistance and what are the implications of this to human health?
- What evidence is there that exposure to the pathways (e.g. bathing or drinking water) is contributing to clinical infections that cannot be treated with existing antibiotics?
