Linkage between antimicrobial usage and development of resistance


Swiss Food and Veterinary Office


Risk assessment

Project status

The use of antimicrobials in livestock is linked to the development of resistance and consequential public health consequences. SAFOSO and the Veterinary Public Health Institute have been contracted by the Swiss Food and Veterinary Office to conduct research to assess the nature of this linkage.

Results are expected to inform a ranking of antimicrobials in terms of public health consequences and related risk management measures.
