The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney, T.D., launched a new section on his Department’s website on the issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) to coincide with European Antibiotic Awareness Day (http://www.agriculture.gov.ie/amr/).
Agri-food & AMR aims to provide farmers and all those involved in the agri-food industry with information and advice in relation to prudent use of antibiotics as well as the latest research and publications on antibiotic resistance.
The webpage also contains the latest publications and reports on AMR as well as conference presentations. In addition, visitors will be able to address any questions they might have on the subject of AMR directly to an expert from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine via an “Ask Our Experts” facility.
