As the international community calls for more and better information to add to the ever-growing body of evidence on the effects of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) on humans, animals, the environment and the economy, policy-makers need access to reliable surveillance data. This data is crucial for monitoring the status of key antimicrobial classes (groups of antimicrobials that are related to each other) in the European Region, and to track how effective policies have been in addressing this public health challenge.
The Central Asian and Eastern European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (CAESAR) network complements the surveillance data generated by the European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance Network (EARS-Net) for countries of the European Union and European Economic Area, coordinated by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). The latest annual CAESAR report reveals steady progress towards forming a more complete picture of AMR in Europe. The report covers a growing and developing network of 19 countries to date.
