ROADMAP FOR ACTION ON ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE
5 KEY STRATEGIES TO TACKLE THIS GLOBAL HEALTH THREAT
The Stakeholder Network on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) hosted under the European Commission’s Health Policy Platform and led by the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA), is the only civil society-led pan-European stakeholder network on AMR. It comprises over 80 leading organisations and individuals committed to tackling AMR from a “One Health” approach.
WE MUST ACT NOW TO TACKLE AMR
Superbugs cost the life of nearly 90 people every day in the EU and the EEA. A serious threat to patient safety, AMR crosses national borders and endangers many healthcare interventions, including life-saving surgical procedures and cancer treatments. The development and spread of multidrug-resistance has far-reaching and potentially life-threatening consequences for humans, animals and the environment, and jeopardises the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We require immediate action and commitment from EU and national policy-makers to tackle this urgent public health crisis.
