NARMS gathers surveillance data from human clinical samples, animal slaughter samples and retail meat samples. This approach to integrated surveillance provides information needed to assess the nature and magnitude of resistance in bacteria moving through the food supply and causing illnesses in humans. The NARMS interactive data dashboards found below allow the user to explore data in different ways.
