UEMO participates to a conference on tackling AMR rise

On 31st May 2017, policymakers and health representatives met within the framework of the European Parliamentary Interest Group on Innovation on health and social care to stimulate debate on innovative diagnostic solutions necessary to manage and fight antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Europe. In this frame, the meeting entitled Innovation in diagnostics for ­fighting antimicrobial resistance provided the framework to launch the White Paper on rapid diagnostic technologies to tackle AMR, perceived to be valuable tools to curb the antibiotic misuse by reducing unnecessary prescription, tailoring treatment for bacterial infections, and limiting the spread of infections.

A comprehensive report will follow shortly.
