New MEP Interest Group on AMR launched today will push for more European cooperation to stop antimicrobial resistance

Brussels, 19 February 2020. “Antimicrobial resistance is one of the top ten global public health threats we currently face. Taking effective action to tackle it is one of the Commission’s key priorities in the area of health, and I am looking forward to working closely with the European Parliament to this effect in the coming years. Together we can form a strong alliance in the fight against antimicrobial resistance and bring change.” said European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides, in her opening address at the launch of the MEP Interest Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) at the European Parliament in Brussels today.

Traditional and complementary medicine (T&CM) is an important and often underestimated health resource with many applications, especially in the prevention and management of lifestyle-related chronic diseases, and in meeting the health needs of ageing populations. Many countries are seeking to expand coverage of essential health services at a time when consumer expectations for care are rising, costs are soaring, and most budgets are either stagnant or being reduced. Given the unique health challenges of the 21st century, interest in T&CM is undergoing a revival.

After Germany in early January, at the beginning of February Belgium became the second European member state to reach its required threshold!

Two countries have reached the threshold!

After Germany in early January, at the beginning of February Belgium became the second European member state to reach its required threshold! The number of signatures in these countries for the Save Bees and Farmers ECI reached the respective thresholds, namely 72.000 for Germany and 15.750 for Belgium. A minimum of 7 countries crossing their respective thresholds is required in addition to the one million validated signatures, in order for the ECI to be considered successful and for it to be officially accepted by the European Commission.
The aim of our Initiative is to obtain a paradigm shift in European agriculture towards a model that meets the needs of the environment, farmers and citizens alike, where all can thrive together.
Across the EU, we want to collect at least one million signatures for a bee-friendly agriculture and a healthy environment. We have until the end of September 2020 to collect signatures in all 27 EU Member States.

You can sign the ECI online or on printed paper forms.

“Vaccinate, vaccinating brings a blessing. Vaccinate, the more the better, to vaccinate is necessary. Yes, it is really great!"-The statement began the one-day event held by the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency, CHAFEA, based in Luxembourg for the past 15 years. The statement was inclusive in a film shown at the event— a deeply one-side propaganda film.

The EU Health Program Conference brought a large stratification of many highly distinguished health-sector members. The EU health commissioner, Vytenis Andriukaitis, offered his farewell speech, gave thanks to all attendees as well as the approximate 7000 organisations. Andriukaitis proudly pointed to the achievements. There was a sense of reflection and sentiment that is usually uncommon in EU-circles, and this resonated and blew through the hall! Andriukaitis stated that under the slogan: “Health in all policy areas,” a new economic system, evidence-based, individual-related care, and digitalization of health and advanced cooperation within the EU had been initiated.

He read the proposed one-million signature petition to the European parliament on Traditional Medicines:
“As a citizen, I urge our policy makers, at national and European level, to encourage the medical profession to take a more holistic view of our health, looking at the whole person not just particular symptoms, promoting overall well-being, and recognising the potential benefits of complementary treatments, including respected traditional approaches such as Ayurveda and Yoga.”

In September 2015, the UN made a bold attempt to try to transform the world by creating the Agenda 2030, a plan of action for the people, planet, and increased economical stability. In the agenda many items were labeled and categorized under the terminology: Sustainability. Examples of this are: Extended peace, ending worldwide poverty, tackling climate change, and ensuring the successful collaboration among stakeholders.
