- To implement farm monitoring and surveillance programs to strengthen the monitoring of animal life and health conditions, and to combat antimicrobial abuse
- To take initiatives to create a national system to increase controls on distribution, prescription and use of veterinary drugs, as well as to promote the enforcement of electronic prescriptions for veterinary drugs in order to avoid the antibiotic abuse on farms.
