Created specifically for professionals working in the global food industry, the Antimicrobial Stewardship in the Food Chain online course will equip course participants with the knowledge and skills needed to make a meaningful contribution to the problem of antibiotic resistance – an issue described as one of ‘the greatest challenges facing humanity’.
Antimicrobial Resistance is one of the key global concerns of our time, affecting animal health, human health, food security and farming practices in all regions. The roles of food industry professionals are highly critical in controlling the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals, and therefore mitigating the risks of AMR emergence. By setting policy on antibiotic stewardship for food supply chains, we have the opportunity to drive responsible antibiotic usage in millions of food-producing animals.
