Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) resources such as reports, publications and journal article citations that focus on AMR activities including; surveillance, research and development, education, extension and outreach. These activities help determine patterns of antibiotic use in food producing animals; monitor antibiotic drug susceptibilities in food, animals, meat, poultry, and to develop mitigations to reduce AMR associated risks.

Health Products and Food Branch (Health Canada).

Resistance to the effects of antimicrobial drugs is a serious problem in Canada and the world. The problem, often referred to as antimicrobial resistance or AMR, costs lives and money and threatens our ability to treat infections in humans and animals. Our traditional response to the development of antimicrobial resistance has been to use different, often new, drugs to treat the disease. This approach is no longer tenable because the supply of new, effective, safe and affordable products is expected to diminish in the future.
