  • RUMA issue wide ranging position paper on antibiotic resistance and antibiotic use in livestock

  • September 10, 2014
  • 10 September 2014: RUMA has published a wide ranging position paper on antibiotic resistance and antibiotic use in livestock. Announcing the publication, RUMA Secretary General, John FitzGerald, said that understandably there is much debate at present on antibiotic resistance in human medicine and antibiotic use in human and veterinary medicine. The Prime Minister has raised the issue and two Parliamentary Committees have considered it with various groups, including RUMA, making submissions. This paper clarifies RUMA’s position on antibiotic resistance and how antibiotics can be responsibly used in UK livestock. It also addresses some of the inaccurate assertions about the use of antibiotics in livestock in the recent Alliance to Save Our Antibiotics (ASOA) paper.
