Antimicrobial resistance in specific diseases

Antimicrobial resistance - Escherichia coli

Escherichia coli resistance to major antibiotics is increasing in almost all countries in Europe. E. coli causes urinary tract and more serious infections and is one of the most common bacteria causing infections.

Antimicrobial resistance - Campylobacteriosis

The annual ECDC-EFSA report looks at antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic and indicator bacteria from humans, animals and food

Antimicrobial resistance - Salmonellosis

Multi-drug resistant Salmonella bacteria continue to spread across Europe, show the latest data on resistance in bacteria in humans, food and animals issued by ECDC and EFSA. There’s evidence of resistance to the antimicrobial colistin in Salmonella among poultry in the EU - this last-resort drug may soon no longer be effective for treating severe human infections with Salmonella.

Antimicrobial resistance/ microbiology - Gonorrhoea

The surveillance of gonococcal antimicrobial susceptibility surveillance in Europe is essential for detecting emerging and increasing antimicrobial resistance and making quality-assured data available to inform revisions of treatment guidelines. ECDC coordinates the Euro-GASP network.
