Title of Collaborative Activity:

Trans-Atlantic Task Force on Antimicrobial Resistance (TATFAR)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The presidential declaration issued at the 2009 EU-US summit called for the creation of “a transatlantic task force on urgent antimicrobial resistance issues focused on appropriate therapeutic use of antimicrobial drugs in the medical and veterinary communities, prevention of both healthcare- and community-associated drug-resistant infections, and strategies for improving the pipeline of new antimicrobial drugs, which could be better addressed by intensified cooperation between us”. The objectives of the Task Force are to increase the mutual understanding of US and EU activities and programs relevant to the antimicrobial resistance issues identified in the declaration to deepen the transatlantic dialogue, to provide opportunities to learn from each other, and to promote information exchange, coordination and co-operation.
