At the start of the new European Commission's first full year of operation, the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP) has issued a call to European Union (EU) policy-makers to make 2015 a year of action in meeting the antimicrobial resistance challenge.
Publishing a new policy statement of its 34 national member associations, EAHP President Dr Roberto Frontini said:
The threat antimicrobial resistance poses to healthcare is hard to overstate. Yet we also know a wide array of policy actions are available. The missing component is serious political intent to drive improvement in how antibiotics are used, and to create a better research environment for new antimicrobial agents.
