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.

A one health approach to AMR containment – the Swedish journey
The film presents how Sweden works with antibiotic resistance from a One Health perspective today. It also wants to show the incredible journey Sweden has made as a country over the past 150 years and how that development has been the basis for how we work with antibiotic resistance and the favorable resistance situation we have today.
