Fixed-term Task and Finish Group
In 2017, at the request of the Food Standards Agency Board, the existing membership of the Group was extended to form a fixed-term "task and finish" group with the following term of reference:
To identify research questions and potential approaches which would (i) decrease uncertainty about any linkage between use of antimicrobials in food production, the incidence of antimicrobial resistance in pathogens and commensals in food production, and the growing AMR-related public health burden, and (ii) allow us to model the impacts of changes in use of antimicrobials in food production. Poultry, sheep, cattle and pigs will be covered in the scope.
