ONE health approach, MULTIPLE answers: 
Citizens’ engagement & stakeholders' actions
to tackle antimicrobial resistance and sustain EU progress 

 DIGITAL CONFERENCE
18th November 2020  -  17:00-19:00
19th November 2020 - 15:30-17:30

The XIV European Patients’ Rights Day (EPRD) has been 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.

Increasing consciousness and access to treatment, reducing the burden of cardiovascular diseases across Europe

FRAMEWORK

Cardiovascular disease and its many manifestations have a major impact on the lives of millions of patients and those around them. There is no doubt that cardiovascular disease will remain the most frequent cause of death and disability in Europe and throughout the world. At the global level, the World Health Organization reported that “cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) take the lives of 17.9 million people every year, 31% of all global deaths” (2018). By 2030, the number of people who die from CVDs, mainly from heart disease and stroke, will increase to reach 23.3 million.

In order to reduce the number of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases, in 2013 European Member States signed the Health for Growth Programme, the third multi-annual programme of EU action in the field of health for the period 2014-2020. The aim is to identify, spread and promote the adoption of validated good practices for efficient and sustainable prevention measures, facing the main risk factors related to cardiovascular diseases, fighting tobacco use, alcohol dependence, obesity and promoting good lifestyles.
