The development of fungicide resistance is a growing problem worldwide

Fungal infections are a serious threat to humans, animals and plants, with 1.5 million deaths annually and food production at risk. Meanwhile, the development of fungicide resistance is becoming an increasing problem worldwide.

The widespread use of azoles, an important class of fungicides, leads to the development of resistance in fungi that are pathogenic to humans and animals or plants. Aspergillus fumigatus is a common fungus that poses a health threat to people with weakened immune systems, and azole resistance in this fungus is spreading globally.

As a part of the network project, AMRprevent, the Norwegian Veterinary Institute has produced a new video to draw more attention to antimicrobial resistance, and create an understanding of the development of fungicide resistance and its challenges.
