Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major challenge facing society today. To address this problem, the EU has implemented several policy frameworks, including the 2017 European One Health Action Plan against AMR. The plan recognises the interconnectedness between human health, animal health, and the environment.

Elta served as the project director for the outcome assessment of a study to future-proof the EU AMR Action Plan. The study, led by ICF and RAND Europe with support from the Romanian Health Observatory and independent experts, assessed the outcomes of the Action Plan and identified priorities for future iaculis.

Overall, the project aimed to identify ways to mitigate threats posed by AMR and take advantage of emerging opportunities. It will inform the preparation of a Proposal for a Council recommendation on AMR and support renewed implementation efforts for the Action Plan.

The study used a mixed methodology that involved a document review, a review of selected Action Plan activities, development of future scenarios, and stakeholder consultations.
