    06/04/2018

    The Caribbean Integrated Surveillance System on Antimicrobial Resistance in Agriculture (CISARA) pilot studies were conducted in seven primary poultry-producing countries within the region during June-October 2016.

The Ohio State University, under the direction of Dr. Armando Hoet, organized and coordinated the logistics and implementation of the pilot projects. They also provided customized training to various countries in the region in antimicrobial use and antimicrobial resistance in agriculture.
