Report finds international variation in AMR policies

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a serious threat to human and animal health and a significant social and economic burden, both in the EU and globally. The European Commission sent a questionnaire to non-EU countries concerning their national policies and measures to address AMR. The responses received have been analysed in an anonymised way in this report, which presents an interesting overview of measures taken around the world to address the important challenge posed by AMR, both in human and veterinary medicine. This action is in line with the EU One Health Action Plan against AMR, which aims for stronger cooperation with international organisations and countries worldwide.
