AMR Stakeholder NetworkUnder the auspices of the European Commission’s Health Policy Platform
The AMR Stakeholder Network brings together more than 60 leading organisations and individuals committed to tackling Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) at national, regional and European level, covering all dimensions of the ‘One Health’ approach.
About the AMR Stakeholder Network
Established in 2017, under the auspices of the European Commission’s Health Policy Platform, the network, led by EPHA, aims to ensure that AMR remains high on the EU agenda during the new Commission’s mandate, advocating for well-coordinated and resourced actions at EU level and in the Member States, aligned with the global work led by the World Health Organization, UN agencies and other actors.
Stakeholder Networks are networks approved by the Commission on a specific key health policy area and operate within the Health Policy Platform. The AMR Stakeholder network was set up to follow up on the Joint Statement and Call to Action on AMR, which urges EU policy-makers to effectively implement the EU One Health Action Plan against AMR , and has been endorsed by over 40 organisations from different sectors. It is the only platform where civil society can exchange with national and European policymakers and stakeholders working to tackle AMR.
The Network’s objectives
Join the Stakeholder Network on AMR!
Organisations and individuals committed to tackling Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) at national, regional and European level, covering all dimensions of the ‘One Health’ approach are welcome to apply to join the AMR Stakeholder Network
Share your good practice to tackle Antimicrobial Resistance!
Actual action, pragmatic interventions and implemented practices can help reduce or slow down the development of resistant bacteria. Local circumstances, promising national policies and individual initiatives could lead to significant improvements in the field.
The AMR Stakeholder Network wants to help identify these existing practices, bringing them to light and giving them visibility at European level, making them better known, recognised and implemented throughout Europe, as well as contributing to the strengthening of Europe’s AMR “safety net” in the aftermath of COVID19.
Deadline: 15 March 2021
