Cooperation to Tackle Antimicrobial Resistance

18 November 2013, at 10:16pm

EU - Today – 18 November - is European Antibiotic Awareness Day.

Over the years, the overuse or misuse of antibiotics has been linked to the emergence and spread of micro-organisms which are resistant to antibiotics, rendering treatment ineffective and posing a serious risk to public health. To combat antimicrobial resistance in Europe, EFSA cooperates closely with other EU agencies such as the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and the European Medicines Agency, particularly on infections that can be transmitted to humans from animals and food.
