Declaration /

Heath First Europe together with the members of the European Patient Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR Patient Group), launched the 2021 Declaration on AMR, being truly committed to raising awareness about the real-world impact of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Consequently, we strive to help reduce the inappropriate use of existing antibiotics, promote antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention and control measures across Europe, and develop novel antibiotics where needed.

The purpose of this Declaration is to empower European citizens and patients to speak with one voice when sharing personal and group insights and experiences regarding the real-world impact of AMR and HAIs.

The Declaration further calls upon European and national authorities to commit to a full range of interventions in field of education, prevention and investment. It is now more urgent than ever to step up actions to prevent HAIs and the related development of AMR throughout the patient journey.

You can find the full Declaration with the policy recommendations and a nice infographic attached below.
