Swedish work on containment of antibiotic resistance - in brief

Tools, methods and experiences.

Sweden has relatively low use of antibiotics per capita and favourable antibiotic resistance conditions. The antibiotic consumption in Sweden has decreased substantially since the mid-1990s. This current situation is influenced by different factors including a long tradition of strong local commitment and strategic work on both regional and national level.

The brochure summarises the full report published on Sweden's long term work on containment of antibiotic resistance. Sweden has in an international perspective relatively low consumption of antibiotics and favourable resistance conditions. Collaboration and exchange of experiences between countries are vital in the efforts to preserve effective antibiotic treatments also for future generations.
