The XIV European Patients’ Rights Day (EPRD) will be celebrated by Active Citizenship Network (ACN) with a virtual multi-stakeholder conference which, this year, focuses on the topic of the fight to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the importance of the citizens’ engagement for a multi stakeholder action.

In 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) named AMR in the 10 most urgent threats that will demand attention from WHO and health partners. In many parts of the world, in fact, AMR has reached alarming levels and already presents a serious social and economic burden. It is estimated to be responsible for 25,000 deaths per year in the EU alone and 700,000 deaths per year globally: AMR might cause more deaths than cancer by 2050.
