ESCMID initiatives to combat antimicrobial resistance and the inappropriate use of antibiotics

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is jeopardising the treatment of infections worldwide. It curtails our ability to successfully protect patients from complicating infections. A lack of effective antibiotics also severely hampers our ability to take advantage of the progress made with research in other medical fields. This page summarizes the major activities aimed at combatting AMR within the ESCMID network and partner organizations.

ESCMID supports all science-based initiatives to combat antimicrobial resistance and promote the appropriate use of antimicrobials.

This is irrespective of whether initiatives are from ESCMID, its members, other societies,  non-governmental organizations or government authorities. ESCMID is not able to financially support all initiatives, but it will provide a scientific platform for selected efforts and prioritize those initiated within the organization and by its members.

This web page lists European or international initiatives active in the field of combatting antimicrobial resistance and links to their individual (external) websites.
