ESAC-Net (European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Consumption network) is the European network of national surveillance systems of antimicrobial consumption, organized by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Using a shared methodology, different European countries are collecting antimicrobial consumption data in the ambulant and/or hospital sector, which are subsequently expressed in DDDs (Defined Daily Dose) per 1000 inhabitants per day. The results are publically available in an interactive database on the website of the ECDC.
In 1997, Belgium has taken the leadership of a surveillance on Antimicrobial Consumption (AMC). The project is being continued under the form of a European permanent surveillance network and is leaded by the ECDC (European Agency) since 2011. The overall objective (mission) is to contribute to the rational use of antimicrobial agents and to limit the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance.
