Posted on 15.06.2023

MedTech Europe has published a statement welcoming the proposal for Council Recommendations on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and the Parliament’s Resolution to Combat AMR. Read the full statement here.

A coordinated European approach is vital to addressing this complex health challenge, and the medical technology industry is proud to play a key role in the fight against AMR – from prevention to control. This is why, MedTech Europe calls for a holistic approach that embraces and strengthens the role of medical technology tools to combat AMR. In the statement, MedTech Europe outlines 5 concrete ways to do so.

The Council Recommendations and the Parliament’s Resolution can be a catalyst for action. MedTech Europe calls on policymakers to take a broader, more balanced approach that leverages multi-stakeholder collaboration, and that harnesses the medical technology solutions that are already contributing to combatting this pressing health challenge as well as future medical innovations. In this urgent collective drive to combat AMR, we must use the technologies we have today, while investing in innovations that may deliver the solutions of tomorrow.
