HOPE is contributing to the Joint Action on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infections (JAMRAI) which was launched on 1 September 2017. JAMRAI is a collaborative project built on existing works and initiatives by Member States as well as international organizations (OECD, ECDC, WHO Europe, OIE and FAO).
The Joint Action will look over the best programmes in each country and propose concrete steps to implement best practices to tackle AMR and HCAI, so that good intentions lead to practical actions shared by the Member States. EU-JAMRAI aims at joining forces to define European common policies to fight Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and control Healthcare-associated Infections (HCAI) in line with the One Health approach and ongoing EU and international policies.
On 9 November 2018 in Vienna, European policy-makers, key international organizations, industry representatives, civil society and healthcare professionals are invited to gather for the 1st EU-JAMRAI Stakeholders Forum to discuss the global challenges and developments in the AMR field. EU-JAMRAI first Annual Meeting is scheduled for 7-8 November 2018 in Vienna, Austria.
