Antibiotic Stewardship in
Animal Health & Food Supply Chains
In conjunction with
"Reducing the use of antimicrobials in food-producing animals, replacing them where possible and re-thinking the livestock production system is essential for the future of animal and public health."
European Medicines Agency and European Food Safety Authority Joint Statement
The effective and appropriate use of antibiotics (antibiotic stewardship) is key to tackling the global epidemic of antimicrobial resistance and ensure a sustainable supply of antibiotics are available for when needed. Activity is already taking place across a wide range of human and animal sectors in the UK – but what can we do across the sectors to help achieve the step change needed? And what are the risks and rewards?
This event will:
• Bring together stakeholders across all sectors under the One Health agenda, but especially the food supply chain, to explore what now needs to happen, and how, to obtain the level of containment and reduction in antimicrobial resistance required.
• Consider how different ongoing or new initiatives across human health, animal health and the food supply chain can inform each other or work in synergy.
• Identify what barriers persist and which opportunities remain unrecognised, and how we can resolve these.
Delegates will hear from leaders in human and animal medicine, regulators and policy-makers about how far we have come and how much further we can and should go! Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the latest thinking on antibiotic use and AMR, and a clear picture of the role and opportunities for their businesses.
