The global tripartite partnership calling for more responsible use of antibiotics in humans, animals and agriculture (including aquaculture and plant production) has announced it is widening its coverage to include the environment sector. This Framework helps government policy-makers and officials identify and assess national policies related to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial use (AMU) in foodanimal production. The Framework is designed to guide the review of national policies to better understand existing policy that can address AMR and reveal gaps in policy. The Framework also provides examples of policy actions that countries can use, where necessary, to institute more effective AMR response and control.
