humans, food-producing animals and derived food, and
the environment.
It is also crucial that all EU Member States have national
strategies against AMR that are implemented through
action plans, integrating actions on the veterinary and
human side, in accordance with the One Health approach,
and involving all sectors throughout the food chain. EFSA
can also play a central role in the EU, providing scientific
advice to Member States and the European Commission to set
science-based strategies to reduce the development of AMR.
