Sustainable financing to tackle AMR

Organised by the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) in partnership with the European Economic and Social Committee, under the patronage of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union

The global threat of AMR is not only a serious cross-border health challenge but also jeopardises the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). What can the EU do to support Member States’ efforts to tackle AMR nationally, regionally and locally? How can the use of EU financial instruments and technical assistance services reduce inequalities present between and within EU countries and strengthen the implementation of One Health national AMR policies and actions?
