Russia to work on antimicrobial resistance

Russia is backing an FAO-led effort to promote food safety and prevent the spread of medicine-resistant "superbugs" in food and on farms in 5 countries in Central Asia and Eastern Europe with a donation of nearly US$3.3 million.

This is stated on the website of FAO. The bulk of the funding will be used to support action on 3 broad fronts:

• Strengthening the regulatory and legal frameworks that underpin national efforts to address antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in agriculture and food chains, including the development national response strategies

• Building the capacity of national surveillance systems to monitor and test for AMR in food systems

• Raising awareness among farmers, animal- and human health professionals, food safety authorities and others regarding AMR risks and how to manage them.

The first major push to escalate awareness of AMR in food and agricultural systems in the region will take place next month when FAO and Russia convene an International Conference on Food Safety and Risk Analysis (Sochi, 18-19 May).

    its a good decision. here in india too all the poisons come from food. no one is giving attention about the food safety. in this situation, your ideas is a motivation to us.

    It is really a good choice to work on the antimicrobial resistance where in the food poisons can be eliminated and all the cattle could be feeded properly. All the posts over here are really good.

    Hoy en día la mayoría de compras se hacen por Internet, cada día mas las personas están mas ocupadas en sus oficinas y no tienen tiempo de ir al supermercado o de comprar artículos directamente desde las tiendas, es por eso que la publicidad por Internet es una de las mejores formas de vender.

    woahh. This is going to be a good step, something for a better future. We should be participating in such things. You don't want powers to do something. You need dedication, sympathy and love in your hear. What you should do is do something for those who can not do things for them selves. Like help them out, we are doing this charity thing this coming week and we are giving away shoes and clothes from <a href=""> ShoesPie coupon codes </a>
