Austrian AMR Action Plan Confirms the Potential of Homeopathy

European Coalition on Homeopathic & Anthroposophic Medicinal Products

The latest version of the Austrian government’s national Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (NAP-AMR) confirms the potential of homeopathy and other complementary medicines in tackling antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial resistance has been identified as one of the greatest health threats worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), working jointly with the European Union, are using the “One Health” approach to introduce and intensify measures to reduce antibiotic resistance.

The current version of the Austrian plan was published on 25 March by the Bundesministerium Soziales, Gesundheit, Pflege und Konsumentenschutz (Ministry for social, health, care and consumer protection – BMSGPK). In line with the international organisations, it describes the projects and procedures planned in Austria to prevent infections and to reduce the use of antibiotics in all areas. The One Health approach is inter-sectoral, and thus the plan includes measures in both human medical and veterinary fields of activity, agriculture, food production and the environment, as well as education with training, further education and training, science and research in all sectors. This holistic approach is deemed essential to sustainably reduce the development and spread of resistance, to promote the quality of antimicrobial therapies and thus to maintain the effectiveness of the existing antimicrobial substances, for the good of humans, animals and the environment.
