September 22, 2011 - New Report on Antimicrobial Resistance Published

The Transatlantic Taskforce on Antimicrobial Resistance has finalized its report, Recommendations for future collaboration between the U.S. and EU.  The report presents 17 recommendations for future cooperation between the United States and the European Union in the global fight to keep antimicrobials effective. The recommendations address collaboration in the areas of appropriate use of antimicrobial drugs in human and veterinary medicine, prevention of drug-resistant infections, and strategies for improving the pipeline of new antimicrobial drugs.  In addition, the report also presents a list of major ongoing activities being undertaken by the EU and the US which provide opportunities to learn from each other, point to areas of future collaboration and highlight novel and highly successful projects.  The report is available at http://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/activities/diseaseprogrammes/TATFAR/Documents/210911_TATFAR_Report.pdf
