The antimicrobial use stewardship principles, developed by the International Poultry Council (IPC) and a cornerstone of the United States Agency of International Development (USAID)’s Transformational Strategies for Farm Output Risk Mitigation (TRANSFORM) project led by Cargill, aim to drive global change throughout the animal agriculture industry. These principles guide actions to avoid the need to use antimicrobials, and when necessary, ensure their proper use. By garnering support from the global poultry industry for science-based principles to address antimicrobial use, the industry is taking action to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and reduce its impact on global health security.

These seven new organizations have joined the 19 others in endorsing or adopting principles for antimicrobial use stewardship, aimed at reducing the need for antimicrobials at the farm level. Previously announced supporters include the Animal Husbandry Association of Vietnam (AHAV), Asociación Latinoamericana de Avicultura (ALA), Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), British Poultry Council (BPC), Canadian Poultry & Egg Processors (CPEP), Cargill, Inc., Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC), DABACO Group, Federación Nacional de Avicultores de Colombia (FENAVI), Hoa Phat, Kenchic Limited, McDonald’s, Poultry Federation of India (PFI), Srinivasa Farms, Thai Broiler Processing Exporters Association (TBA), Turkey Farmers of Canada (TFC), Tyson Foods, Unione Nazionale Filiere Agroalimentari Carni e Uova (UNAITALIA), and Vietnam Poultry Association (VIPA).

“By proactively supporting science-based antimicrobial use principles, the private sector is sending a clear message that antimicrobial stewardship is good business,” said Ricardo Santin, IPC President. “We hope others are inspired to make the same commitments to stewardship, adopting science-based practices that both improve animal health and deliver benefits to their bottom line.”

Over 26 organizations have endorsed the antimicrobial use stewardship principles, impacting more than 140 countries and covering over 40% of global poultry meat production across all sectors of the industry. These organizations are leading the way in demonstrating their commitment to these principles, acknowledging that change begins at the farm level.

The principles for organizations to encourage responsible antimicrobial use include a risk-based approach, farm management practices to improve animal health, compliance with national authorizations, and the supervised use of critically important antimicrobials for human medicine.

“AMR is a global issue, and it will take a global response to ensure antibiotics remain a viable option to treat diseases in both animals and humans,” said Annie Kneedler, TRANSFORM Chief of Party. “By working across the public and private sector, we can identify market-driven solutions that improve animal health, both reducing the risk of AMR and helping safeguard global health security from other emerging disease threats.”

A private-sector consortium, led by Cargill, Heifer International, and IPC, is spearheading the TRANSFORM initiative in Kenya, India, and Vietnam. The goal is to promote market-driven animal health solutions that enhance global health security by addressing zoonotic diseases and antimicrobial resistance. By taking a comprehensive approach and working across the entire value chain, TRANSFORM aims to bring about lasting, systemic change through on-farm practices, holistic animal nutrition research, antimicrobial use stewardship, and access to finance to support animal health and economic sustainability.

Through a total systems approach and by working throughout the value chain, TRANSFORM seeks to drive lasting, systemic change through on-farm practices, holistic animal nutrition research, antimicrobial use stewardship, and access to finance to support animal health and economic sustainability.

TRANSFORM has made significant strides since its launch in 2021, providing training to over 80,000 farmers in India and Kenya. As a result, 96% of farmers reported reduced animal mortality and nearly one third reported an increase in income after adopting new biosecurity or farm management practices. Collaborating with nearly 50 organizations in India and Kenya, TRANSFORM has also improved financial products and services for farmers, deploying almost $1 million in financing. Additionally, the research portfolio of TRANSFORM includes 22 trials to study the impact of animal nutrition on priority pathogens and antimicrobial resistant genes.
