Policy and Advocacy

Capitol Hill

Ending the routine, non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in animal agriculture is a matter of protecting public health as well as the environment. Healthcare professionals carry a moral authority that can bring attention to this critical health issue as well as drive the necessary policy changes that will preserve antibiotics for human health.

Through our Antibiotics in Animal Agriculture initiative, we mobilize the healthcare voice to build support for antibiotics legislation and regulation. We educate, and activate a network of healthcare sector representatives who can take immediate action through sign-on letters, testimonials, and legislative visits.  

We work in collaboration with national partners on education and engagement of the healthcare sector, including: The PEW Charitable Trusts’ Antibiotics Resistance Project , Keep Antibiotics Working Coalition, Natural Resources Defense Council, Infectious Disease Society of America, among others.
