Antibiotics health crisis

A new Alliance

Compassion in World Farming has joined with two other established organisations, Sustain and the Soil Association, to form the Alliance to Save Our Antibiotics. Together we aim to halt the routine use of antibiotics in farm animals.

A new report published by Compassion, Case Study of a Health Crisis, goes into all the detail on this vital medical and animal health issue. It explains why over-use of antibiotics in factory farming, especially at low doses over several days, is contributing to the huge threat of a world without effective cures for bacterial infections.
