Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance due to the continuous selective pressure from widespread use of antimicrobials in humans, animals and agriculture has been a growing problem for decades. In 2001, European Union Ministers of Health adopted Council Recommendations on the prudent use of antimicrobial agents in human medicine. This issue of Eurosurveillance is the second one this month dedicated to antimicrobial resistance, in connection with the first-ever European Antibiotic Awareness Day - a European Union (EU) health initiative involving all key players to increase awareness of Europeans about antimicrobial resistance and prudent use of antibiotics.
