|Final progress report on FAIRR’s antibiotics engagement launched|
The report, published on Monday with a foreword by Dame Sally Claire Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England, is the culmination of a three-year FAIRR-led engagement supported by a $4.9 trillion investor coalition.
As part of the engagement, over 70 investors asked 20 global food giants including McDonalds and Yum! Brands to reduce antibiotic use and curb the risk from growing antibiotic resistance. Before the engagement, no company had an antibiotic stewardship policy. Now, 95% of the companies have one in place or in development. In addition, 60% of the companies have committed to reduce or prohibit the routine use of medically important antibiotics in line with WHO recommendations. The launch was covered by Reuters.
