Antimicrobial resistance has been identified by WHO and the EU Commission as a major crisis facing the health systems of all countries. In the light of this crisis there is an urgent need to reduce the use of antibiotics. There is sufficient evidence that some CAM modalities offer effective treatment options for a range of human infectious diseases and can significantly reduce our dependency on antibiotics. In addition, they offer an effective alternative to antibiotic use in animal husbandry. They must therefore be seriously considered and investigated by the EU, for both human and animal health.

Speakers from the CAM professional community and academia have been invited to make presentations outlining CAM’s rich potential for the development of novel antimicrobial therapies that are not susceptible to developing microbial resistance.

The meeting will offer the opportunity for policy makers, researchers and stake holders to enter into an active dialogue on a subject that is highly relevant for the health of all EU citizens.

Thank you for your support, we look forward to welcoming you on 1 April.
