The European Union Summary Report on Antimicrobial Resistance in zoonotic and indicator bacteria from humans, animals and food in 2019–2020
Data on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in zoonotic and indicator bacteria from humans, animals and food are collected annually by the EU Member States (MSs), jointly analysed by the EFSA and the ECDC and reported in a yearly EU Summary Report.

Antimicrobial resistance surveillance in Europe 2022 - 2020 data
The results presented in this report are based on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) data from invasive isolates reported to the Central Asian and European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (CAESAR) network and the European Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Network (EARS-Net) in 2021 (data referring to 2020).
WHO and ECDC report: antimicrobial resistance remains a health threat in Europe
The first Antimicrobial resistance surveillance in Europe report published jointly by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the WHO Regional Office for Europe on 26 January 2022, provides a pan-European overview of the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) situation in the European region, featuring data from 2020.
Antimicrobial consumption in the EU/EEA (ESAC-Net) - Annual Epidemiological Report for 2020
For 2020, twenty-nine countries (27 European Union (EU) Member States and two European Economic Area (EEA) countries - Iceland and Norway) reported data on antimicrobial consumption. Twenty-five countries reported data for both community and hospital consumption; two countries (Germany and Iceland) reported only community consumption, and two countries (Cyprus and Czechia) reported total consumption for both sectors combined.
