The main aim of this network is to develop guidelines describing best practices on setting up systems for collection of AMU data at farm level that are applicable to guide antibiotic stewardship. A review of available systems for the collecting and reporting of AMU data in the participating countries will be established based on a strengths/weaknesses analysis. Furthermore, the guidelines and information on currently available systems will be made publicly available through their website. A final aim of AACTING is to organise an International Conference on these topics, to disseminate project outcomes and discuss further developments and challenges.
