Since November 2017, ViParc has run a study to map out the socio-economic context of antimicrobial usage (AMU) among poultry farmers in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam.

Its specific aims include: (1) to define the sources of advice and procurement of antimicrobials to farmers; (2) to characterise socio-economic attributes of heavy and light users of antimicrobials; (3) to describe the farmers’ individual perceptions of AMU; and (4) to investigate the key motivators and thresholds for farmers to use AMU.
