Implementation Phase 1 (2011-2013)

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and The European Commission (EC) released the first progress report of the Transatlantic Taskforce on Antimicrobial Resistance (TATFAR) in May 2014. Collaboration between the U.S. and the EU has led to an increase in exchanging information, understanding of best approaches and practices, and developing peer relationships. While significant progress has been made, concern related to AMR continues to grow. Therefore, the mandate of the taskforce was extended for two additional years for Implementation Phase 2 (2014-2015).

The report summarizes the progress and the outcomes of the implementation of the 17 original recommendations, the decision about the future of each recommendation and describes one new recommendation.
