A global ac­tion plan on an­timi­cro­bial re­sis­tance, in­clud­ing an­tibi­otic re­sis­tance, was en­dorsed at the World Health As­sem­bly in May 2015. The global ac­tion plan aims to en­sure that the preven­tion and treat­ment of in­fec­tious dis­eases with safe and ef­fec­tive medicines con­tin­ues. This March 15, World Con­sumer Rights Day will be ob­served un­der the theme ‘An­tibi­otics off the Menu’. Con­sumer or­gan­i­sa­tions from around the world, in part­ner­ship with Con­sumers In­ter­na­tional, are call­ing on food com­pa­nies to make a global com­mit­ment to stop serv­ing meat from an­i­mals raised with the rou­tine use of an­tibi­otics.
