AMR has been identified as one of the most pressing global challenges we face this century. Through projects such as IID3, we are able to learn more about AMR in foodborne pathogens with the aim of supporting work to prevent the spread. Part of our World Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Week (WAAW) series of blogs.
One of the Food Standards Agency's ongoing commitments to food safety is surveillance. As part of this, we actively monitor the levels of infectious intestinal disease (IID) in the UK.
While we regularly review the number of confirmed IID cases, not all cases that occur in the UK population will be recorded by public health systems.
With the publication of Assessment Comparing Meat Production Processes In Selected Countries, Rick Mumford, considers what the report tells us about international meat production methods and food standards.
Ahead of the landmark IID3 study, we are looking for collaborators working in public health, epidemiology and related fields for the major research into Infectious Intestinal Disease. Rick Mumford explores the project and how to get involved.
