ECDC, EFSA and EMA Joint Scientiﬁc Opinion on a list of outcome indicators as regards surveillance of antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial consumption in humans and food-producing animals
ECDC, EFSA and EMA have jointly established a list of harmonised outcome indicators to assist EU Member States in assessing their progress in reducing the use of antimicrobials and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in both humans and food-producing animals.
Antibiotics: be responsible
The ability of bacteria to resist the action of an antibiotic has become a recognised global problem. Antibiotic resistance severely limits the number of antibiotics available for the treatment of diseases.
Public consultation: Proposals for draft EU guidelines on the prudent use of antimicrobials in human medicine
This document presents draft guidelines that will support the European Commission in its aim to produce a finalised EU guidelines document to work against the rising threats from antimicrobial resistance.
Antimicrobial resistance and healthcare-associated infections - Annual epidemiological report 2014 [2012 data]
The Annual Epidemiological Report is a key ECDC publication on the epidemiology of communicable diseases of public health significance in Europe. The 2014 edition of the Annual Epidemiological Report is being published a disease group at a time and will later be compiled into one comprehensive report.
EFSA/ECDC European Union summary report on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic indicator bacteria from humans, animals and food in 2013
The antimicrobial resistance data on zoonotic and indicator bacteria in 2013, submitted by 28 EU Member States, were jointly analysed by EFSA and ECDC.
ECDC/EFSA/EMA first joint report on the integrated analysis of the consumption of antimicrobial agents and occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria from humans and food-producing animals
The ECDC, the EFSA and the EMA have for the first time jointly explored associations between consumption of antimicrobials in humans and food-producing animals, and antimicrobial resistance in bacteria from humans and food-producing animals.
