European doctors are committed partners in fighting antimicrobial resistance: watch our video for EAAD 2023.

Europe is facing a growing public health threat from AMR, and it is crucial for patients that we keep existing antibiotics working. Therefore, in 2023 our association accelerated our efforts to advocate for more European action on AMR. Our summary report provides an overview of our recent publications and events on AMR.

In April, we published our new policy, recalling that that prudent prescription of antibiotics is a responsibility of each practicing doctor in Europe and worldwide.

On 27 April 2023, we organised a fruitful high-level conference on AMR, which was warmly hosted by the Swedish Medical Association. Doctors, national policymakers, representatives of the European Commission and health stakeholders all contributed to an excellent discussion. The conference took place the day following the proposals for the revision of the EU’s pharmaceutical legislation and Council Recommendation on AMR.

We need to act in collaboration with many partners and are committed to the One Health approach bringing together the human health, veterinary and environmental sectors.

Therefore, we continue as committed partners with stakeholders across sectors to play our part in tackling AMR in Europe.
