BeH-SAC: Belgian Hospitals - Surveillance of Antimicrobial Consumption

Introduction

Antimicrobial resistance leads to higher morbidity and additional healthcare expenses.

Therefore in 2001, the European Commission commanded the Member States to encourage the prudent use of antimicrobial medicines. This was confirmed in June 2017 in the new ‘One Health Action Plan against Antimicrobial Resistance’ of the European Commission.

Starting from 01/07/2007, Belgian acute care hospitals and chronic care hospitals with 150 beds or more are obligated to install an antibiotic management team in their hospital. The working group Hospital Medicine of the Belgian Antibiotic Policy Coordination Committee (BAPCOC) follows up the actions of these antibiotic management teams and ensures that Belgian hospitals receive a feedback report of their antimicrobial consumption.
