Abstract

  • Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been a serious rising issue for China because of unregulated use of antibiotics.
  • Using antibiotics for livestock provides a vector for resistant strains to the public.
  • We proposed a two-pronged solution: 1. Educate the farmers through pamphlets with each delivery of antibiotics. 2. Educate the public by using labels on meat to promote antibiotic free meat.
