Tracking and Monitoring Antimicrobial Use in Food-Producing Animals

  • The Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA is partnering with the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) to explore the development of a public-private partnership framework for collecting and analyzing real-world data regarding antimicrobial use (AMU) in food-producing animals.
  • The FDA Foundation will be convening and facilitating a series of working sessions with invited stakeholders to gather input on the benefits, costs, and challenges of creating and maintaining an AMU data repository that could enhance understanding of how antimicrobials are used in animals and support antimicrobial stewardship.
  • Once the series of discussions have been completed, the FDA Foundation will summarize the feedback obtained and will provide a public report.
  • For more information, contact Dr. Amar Bhat of the FDA Foundation.
