This risk assessment will discuss CAZ-AVI resistance in brief, review the recent literature reporting resistance of CRE to CAZ-AVI, and assess the risk for the EU/EEA countries. It will outline options for appropriate detection of resistance and the correct and timely implementation of IPC measures to prevent spread of these highly resistant organisms within healthcare settings and across borders.
