Australian chicken meat industry celebrates AMR awareness
The Australian chicken meat industry supports the World Health Organization (WHO) in calling on Australians to handle antimicrobials with care, in line with the theme of this year’s global awareness week. “The Australian chicken meat industry has been a global leader in helping to prevent antibiotic resistance through the adoption of responsible use practices and policies since the 1980s,” said Australian Chicken Meat Federation executive director, Dr Vivien Kite. “The industry acknowledges that it has a role to play to prevent the development of antibiotic resistance, while it at the same time has a responsibility to protect and maintain the health and welfare of the chickens in its care, and we are proud of the work that has been done to date, and that is ongoing.”
