MEPs join new Interest Group to tackle Antimicrobial Resistance

  05 December 2019

The European Court of Auditors’ Special Report on EU Action on AMR released last week concluded that to date, the European Commission’s support to strengthen national policies resulted in little progress in reducing AMR. This demonstrates the need for a dedicated parliamentary group to help ensure that more concerted action is taken at EU and national level to tackle AMR within a ‘One Health’ perspective.

“The setting up of a new MEP Interest Group on AMR during the World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2019 is a real milestone – ensuring that AMR remains high on the EU policy and political agenda. It is a strong signal towards finding real solutions to tackle one of the most serious health threats of our time, impacting the lives of many Europeans” said Ann Marie Borg, Coordinator of the AMR Stakeholder Network.
