On 27 October, the European Commission adopted its 2016 Work Programme, the second of the Juncker Commission, reaffirming the commitment to the ten political priorities of its Political Guidelines.
Even though research is not mentioned as a stand alone priority, JPIAMR welcomes that Antimicrobial Resistance is mentioned as a separate priority point. We look forward to continued collaboration with the European Commission.
“A sustainable future also means foreseeing and mitigating threats to a healthy environment. The Commission will continue its work to help Member States address the challenge of anti-microbial resistance and contribute to global efforts to tackle this threat.”
