Abstract

The results presented in this report are based on antimicrobial resistance data from invasive isolates reported to EARS-Net by 29 EU/EEA countries in 2015 (data referring to 2014), and on trend analyses of data reported by the participating countries for the period 2011-2014. The antimicrobial resistance situation in Europe displays large variations depending on the bacterium, antimicrobial group and geographical region. For several antimicrobial group-bacterium combinations, a northto- south and west-to-east gradient is evident in Europe. In general, lower resistance percentages are reported by countries in the north and higher percentages by countries in the south and east of Europe. These differences are most likely related to differences in antimicrobial use, infection control and healthcare utilisation practices in the countries.
