Outcomes from the latest EUROCAM meeting on 20 June 2017

  • EUROCAM is currently working on a three-year plan of collaboration with WHO to be agreed jointly by both parties. We anticipate that this will lead to shared policy briefings with WHO for the European Parliament on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) as well as palliative and supportive cancer care. In addition, EUROCAM is seeking to contribute to WHO’s Knowledge Platform and its database for clinical evidence.
  • The Working Group on Health of the European Parliamentary Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety is organizing a meeting in the European Parliament on 16 October under the title: "Complementary and alternative therapies for patients today and tomorrow.” EUROCAM is invited to propose speakers to make the case for the inclusion of CAM in the health systems of the EU and beyond. We understand that speakers with a critical view on CAM will also be invited.*
  • In collaboration with some members of the European Parliament, EUROCAM is planning a CAM Interest Group meeting in the European Parliament to review the scope and role of CAM in the management of musculoskeletal disorders. This is presently scheduled for spring 2018.
  • EUROCAM is in contact with the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission about organizing an event on best practices of CAM for Commission officials. We are actively seeking the support of members of the European Parliament to enable this meeting to go ahead.

* EUROCAM is currently seeking clarification about who may attend this meeting. Should the meeting be open to all, we will let you know so that should you wish to attend, arrangements can be made to this effect.

G SANTE is pleased to announce the adoption of the new EU action plan on AMR, officially titled: 'Communication from the Commission to the Council and the European Parliament: A European One Health Action Plan against Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)'.

This new One Health action plan is motivated by the need to fight against AMR, with the EU supporting Member States through EU added value actions, leading and contributing towards this global issue. Its overarching goal is to counteract emerging resistances, their spread and ensure that there continues to be availability of effective treatment for infections in humans and animals. It provides a framework for continued, coherent and more extensive action to tackle AMR.

Below you find will links to the new action plan and further resources:
Many thanks to those that participated in the open public consultation. Contributions were fed into the new One Health action plan and taken into account to propose concrete actions.
