European Antibiotic Awareness Day

15 November 2017 marks the 10th European Antibiotic Awareness Day, an EU-level initiative to raise awareness about the threat to public health of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the importance of using antibiotics prudently. Vytenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, delivered a keynote speech at an event in Brussels organised by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and ECDC published the latest surveillance data on antibiotic resistance in Europe.

The UEMO is proud to be part of the 10th European Antibiotics Awareness Day. Dr Rivolta and Dr McCarthy participated and through a demonstration video, have shown to the audience the pledge by European General Practitioners to fight antimicrobial resistance.

The ECDC report is available here.

The UEMO pledge can be seen here.
