Sweden continues to offer support to other countries in the important work against antibiotic resistance. An e-learning course that showcases how Sweden is working with rational use of antibiotics will be launched on May 4, 2023, at Strama's annual network meeting, attended by Minister of Social Affairs Jakob Forssmed.
The interactive e-learning course “Strama – a working model to tackle antibiotic resistance in Sweden” is developed by the Swedish Public Health Agency and the national working group for Strama, together with ReAct and Antibiotic Smart Sweden with support from the Swedish Government.
Sweden’s initiatives for international support
Within the framework of the Swedish government assignment, the Public Health Agency of Sweden has also contributed to the development of national treatment recommendations for hospitals in Latvia which will be in place in from early 2024: These will be made available to the healthcare sector via a website and an app.
– Both of these initiatives strengthen Sweden’s international support portfolio in the area of antimicrobial resistance. The idea is that they can be used as operational support in practical work and as inspiration,” says Andreas Sandgren, Head of Unit at the Public Health Agency of Sweden.
Strama: interdisciplinary teams in the health care system
Strama work involves efforts in interdisciplinary teams in the health care system. NAG-Strama, the national working group within the regions’ knowledge management for health care, is central to the exchange of knowledge and support in regional implementation.
– Strama has played an important role in Sweden’s work on the responsible use of antibiotics since the 1990s. “Compared to other countries, we have a good situation with a low incidence of resistant bacteria,” says Thomas Tängdén, chairman of NAG Strama and Medical Advisor ReAct.
Antimicrobial resistance high on EU Sweden 2020 agenda
Antibiotic resistance is a global health threat that requires efforts from the entire international community. The Swedish work to ensure continued access to effective antibiotics is internationally recognized as successful and prioritized at the political level. In the first half of 2023, Sweden holds the Presidency of the Council of Ministers of the European Union, and antimicrobial resistance is high on the health agenda.
