Description

This Expert Commission is charged with reviewing federal efforts to date on addressing antibiotic use, including unnecessary use, in animal agriculture, and developing a roadmap for progress for the coming months and years. To that end, the Expert Commission’s primary goal is to develop a short report for release in early 2017 that includes key recommendations for U.S. policymakers, their staff and other key stakeholders in the U.S. government. The report will primarily focus on recommendations on improving and strengthening existing public policy and regulations, as well as new policy ideas and possibly, recommendations for research priorities. Secondary audiences of the report will include journalists who cover antibiotic resistance and the general public.
