Surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in Europe, 2022 data

Surveillance report

This executive summary showcases results derived from 2022 antimicrobial resistance (AMR) data, sourced from invasive isolates reported to both the Central Asian and European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (CAESAR) network and the European Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Network (EARS-Net).

Executive summary

Of the compiled data, CAESAR received reports from 17 countries, whereas EARS-Net amassed data from 30 countries, encompassing all European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) nations. Although both EARSNet and CAESAR utilize similar methodologies for data gathering and analysis, the information originates from distinct surveillance systems across different countries. Given that each country’s surveillance is shaped by unique protocols and practices, it is important to exercise caution when contrasting AMR patterns between them.
