Joint press conference on the occasion of the European Antibiotic Awareness Day

Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Innovation and Science, Tonio Borg, Member of the EC in charge of Health, and Marc Sprenger, Director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), gave a joint press conference on the occasion of the 2013 European Antibiotic Awareness Day. A survey published by the European Commission today reveals a decrease in antibiotic use in humans since 2009 and growing public awareness that antibiotics do not kill viruses. However, this positive news is overshadowed by data released in parallel by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) showing a marked increase in Europe of multi-drug resistant Gram-negative bacteria resistant to the carbapenems – last-line antibiotics used to treat healthcare associated infections. The Commission is therefore stepping up the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR) through the funding of 15 new research projects and harmonised rules on the collection of data on AMR linked to animals and food.
