Join ReAct and Uppsala Antibiotic Center seminar during Almedalen Week in Sweden!
This collaborative seminar is a conversation focusing on how the Swedish experiences with the STRAMA programme may be useful inspiration for other countries who wish to improve stewardship of antibiotics in the human health sector - as well as what Sweden can learn from others. The seminar will also focus on obstacles low- and middle-income countries may face in adapting and implementing similar programmes in their contexts and what can be done to overcome such obstacles.
About the seminar
Sweden has extensive experience in addressing antibiotic resistance and working systematically in hospitals with antibiotic stewardship to reduce unnecessary use of antibiotics. The STRAMA programme has been instrumental towards this end.
- This event will do a reality check on how the Swedish STRAMA programme can be used as inspiration for other countries in their work to improve stewardship of antibiotics in the human health sector – as well as what Sweden can learn from others.
- The event will also explore what obstacles low- and middle-income countries may face in adapting and implementing similar programmes in their contexts, and what can be done to overcome such obstacles.
