According to EU Reporter the EAAD was recognised for its impact and sustainability. The jury stated: “The project is dealing with probably the most important threat to public health today: antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The EAAD has contributed to placing this issue high on the national and international public and political agenda”. The EHA jury consists of high-ranking European health experts.
