UMASH Annual Forum - Antimicrobial Resistance in Agriculture: Is it a Worker Health Issue?
From AV AV Operations 1
WHAT IS ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE?
The topic of antimicrobial resistance in agriculture is often centered around the use of antimicrobials and the potential transfer of resistance via food or direct contact with animals. However, this issue is more complex and the impact on the agricultural worker is often not discussed. This forum builds on our efforts to support the health of farmers, farm workers and their families.
