A new report authored by 12 antibiotic resistance experts from the fields of infectious disease medicine, veterinary medicine, microbiology, epidemiology, and public health outlines key steps for policymakers, food companies and food purchasers, and medical groups to help tackle the antibiotic resistance crisis. Combating Antibiotic Resistance: A Policy Roadmap to Reduce Use of Medically Important Antibiotics in Livestock is the result of an eight-month collaboration to craft a roadmap, consisting of 11 core policy recommendations, to help move the United States forward in addressing the contribution of livestock antibiotic use to the growing global threat of antibiotic resistance. The recommendations are split into three key areas: decreasing livestock use of medically important antibiotics, monitoring livestock antibiotic use, and enhancing surveillance and data integration to inform antibiotic-resistance policy.
