Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) released, “Supporting Antimicrobial Stewardship in Veterinary Settings, Goals for Fiscal Years 2024-2028.” This five-year plan builds upon the progress of the previous plan for FY 2019-2023.
The five-year plans are intended to provide stakeholders with a transparent roadmap of the actions that correspond to FDA’s three main veterinary stewardship goals:
- Align antimicrobial drug product use with the principles of antimicrobial stewardship
- Foster stewardship of antimicrobials in veterinary settings
- Enhance monitoring of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial drug use in animals
