This report describes the results of the ARNA (‘Antimicrobial resistance and the causes of non-prudent use of antibiotics’) project, which aimed to:

  1. identify key factors that drive the sales and non-prudent use of antibiotics in human medicine obtained without a prescription;
  2. assess the level of enforcement of the legislation regarding ‘prescription-only’ use of antimicrobial agents in the EU;
  3. document good practices aimed at strengthening more prudent use of antibiotics;
  4. develop policy options for more prudent use of antibiotics.
