EU to measure antimicrobial resistance

The European Commission has requested that EU agencies produce indicators to monitor changes in antimicrobial resistance, as it prepares to launch a new five-year plan to tackle the issue.

Three EU agencies—the European Food Safety Authority, the European Medicines Agency and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control—will propose indicators to monitor developments in antimicrobial resistance.

It is hoped that the indicators, to be developed by the end of 2017, will help the EU and its member states monitor the use of antimicrobials in products, measure the reduction of AMR and assess the impact of mitigation measures.
