Infographic | Safeguarding colistin: A crucial antimicrobial for human health

How can the use of antimicrobials in food production lead to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and threaten human health? And why is it crucial that some antimicrobials (such as colistin) are used only in humans?

In our latest infographic, we present key data related to AMR in the EU food production sector and the impact of AMR on human health in Europe. The infographic highlights what healthcare professionals can do to influence EU policy and encourage the European Commission to include the life-saving antimicrobial colistin on a list of antimicrobials reserved for human health.
