Information about health care and conditions

The Commission has developed information for consumers on some key safety and quality issues, and health conditions.

Antimicrobial stewardship and antibiotic use

Antimicrobials are medicines used to treat and prevent infections. They include antibiotics and antiviral medicines. Infections are caused by organisms called microbes, such as bacteria.

Antimicrobial stewardship is a set of strategies to ensure that medicines are used appropriately, to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance.
