The EU Action Plan against Antimicrobial Resistance

32 071 views

Antibiotics are precious resources used every day to help cure common illnesses and prevent infections during surgery. Unfortunately, because of excessive use, bacteria become resistant, leading to antimicrobial resistance (AMR). As a result, antibiotics become less effective and ultimately useless. AMR presents a serious social and economic burden. It is estimated to be responsible for 25,000 deaths per year in the EU alone and costs EUR 1.5 billion annually. The EU is leading the way with an Action Plan that supports Member States and promotes collaboration across sectors and society to fight AMR together.
