International collaborations on antibiotic resistance

We have established bilateral collaborations with a number of countries and national agencies within the areas of antibiotic resistance and infection prevention and control. We also have multilateral collaborations with European and international organisations, such as the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the independent Network ReAct.

Increasing antibiotic resistance threatens to undermine modern basic health care and advanced medical care. Co-operation between countries, veterinary and human medicine, as well as the environmental sector opens up to new opportunities for sustainable change.

Ongoing collaborations

Containment of antibiotic resistance in Sweden is characterised by long-term, structured measures and collaborations at local, national and international levels involving many disciplines and sectors.
