In order to prevent further spread of antimicrobial resistance we need to take action now, and thereby ensure treatment for both humans and animals in the future.
In this context it is important with an integrated approach with focus on both human and veterinary medicine, as there is a clear link between consumption of antibiotics in animals and resistance development in humans.
The conference will aim to address the challenges of antimicrobial resistance by, among other things exchanging best practices and discussing possible solutions to the problem of antimicrobial resistance in humans and animals with focus on improving the data collection and surveillance, stopping the overuse of antibiotics, and reducing the use of the critically important antibiotics.
Participants at the conference will be both experts and civil servants from EU countries, candidate countries and EEA countries. Stakeholder organisations and institutions, such as the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the EU Commission will also participate.
Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary will open the conference and the press is invited to the welcoming and opening speeches Wednesday morning 14 March, 2012.
There will be an opportunity for interviews with keynote speakers.
