Dear colleagues,

The European Commission published a public consultation on a One Health Action Plan to support EU member states in the fight against antimicrobial resistance. The consultation consists of two separate surveys, a questionnaire for citizens and one for administrations, associations and other organisations active in AMR.

You may also send suggestions on concrete actions to ensure greater coherence in the fight against AMR or concrete examples of AMR data that are not currently collected within the EU to our Office info@escmid.org to be included in the survey ESCMID will be filling in. But we also encourage specialists in our network to have their institutions in their respective countries participate in the survey and to help distribute the questionnaire for citizens via the channels at your disposal.

On a different – but not entirely unrelated note – the European Medicines Agency and the European Food Safety Authority issued at the end of last week a joint scientific opinion on measures to reduce the need to use antimicrobial agents in animal husbandry in the European Union, and the resulting impacts on food safety.
