An updated strategic plan detailing the goals of the Center for Veterinary Medicine's (CVM) National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) aims to change the way the agency samples animals, improve its data recording and reporting methods, strengthen collaborative partnerships between national and international agencies and harmonize international reporting standards.
CVM, the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) veterinary regulatory oversight body, uses NARMS as a public health surveillance system to track antibiotic resistance in foodborne bacteria. The program aims to protect animal-based food sources, and is the result of a partnership between FDA, the Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention (CDC), the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
The 2012 update of NARMS incorporates a number of changes:
