Antimicrobial resistance remains commonly detected in bacteria in humans, animals and food: EFSA-ECDC report
Bacteria such as Salmonella and Campylobacter, some of the most common causes of food-borne infections, showed significant resistance to common antimicrobials, according to the newly published EFSA-ECDC European Union Summary Report on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic and indicator bacteria from humans, animals and food in 2012.
World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2016 focuses on healthcare workers - in partnership with EAAD
This year the WHO-lead initiative focuses on healthcare workers and the essential role they play in raising awareness about antibiotic resistance and making sure that antibiotics will also be effective in the future.

Antimicrobial resistance remains high – says EU report
The findings in the latest report on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in bacteria from ECDC and EFSA underline the serious threat AMR poses to public and animal health. Infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to antimicrobials lead to about 25 000 deaths in the EU every year.
Antimicrobial resistance on the rise in the European Union, EFSA and ECDC warn
Bacteria in humans, food and animals continue to show resistance to the most widely used antimicrobials, says the latest report on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacteria in Europe.
Salmonella and Campylobacter show significant levels of resistance to common antimicrobials in humans and animals
Treatment options for some of the most common food-borne infections are decreasing, as types of bacteria (called ‘isolates’) continue to show resistance to antimicrobial drugs.
