The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are leading a yearlong effort called the Antimicrobial Resistance Challenge. The goal is to bring attention to the issue of antibiotic resistance.

The animal agriculture groups support the responsible use of antibiotics and science-based international standards.
