New European One Health action plan against Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)Comments Off on New European One Health action plan against Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

Today, the Commission renewed its political commitment to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR) by publishing a new European One Health action plan against AMR. This action plan reiterates the importance of working in collaboration across human and animal health and the environment under the One Health approach. Sharing best practices, fostering research and innovation as well as cooperating at global level will be the focal areas of the EU for the coming years.

CPME also welcomes the adoption of EU guidelines on the prudent use of antimicrobials in human health. These guidelines are an important contribution to EU activities on AMR and will support national and local authorities in preparing their guidelines and recommendations addressed to health professionals involved in the fight against AMR.
