|Resource title||USDA/HHS Response to the House and Senate Reports: Antibiotic Resistance in Livestock|
|Author/source||US Department of Agriculture|
|Date published||September 2000|
|Summary text/ abstract||In their reports accompanying FY2000 appropriations for Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies, the Committees on Appropriations in both Houses asked the Secretaries of Agriculture and of Health and Human Services to implement GAO's recommendation and develop a joint strategy for addressing antimicrobial resistance. This document explains the strategy and includes a timetable and budget for tackling the problem of agricultural antimicrobial use and the emergence of antimicrobial resistance. The House and Senate Committees on Appropriations also asked for a strategy to conduct a risk assessment of the human health risk linked to on-farm antimicrobial use. The House Committee further directed the report to compare the risk of resistance in foodborne pathogens from the on-farm use of antimicrobials with that of the other uses of antimicrobials. The House and Senate Committees also directed that the report detail how the results of the risk assessment would be incorporated into regulations governing the use and approval of on-farm antimicrobials. More than a dozen Federal agencies have an interest in the problem of antimicrobial resistance, and several of these agencies have responsibilities regarding the use of antimicrobials in agriculture. Coordinated interagency efforts toward an effective public health response to the problem began several years ago.|
