Joint antibiotics and resistance action plan


Published by Ministry of the Interior and Health Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.

In international terms, Denmark has relatively low consumption of antibiotics and a low rate of development of resistance to antibiotics. This is due, in part, to close cooperation between relevant authorities and an ability and willingness to respond to new knowledge and new challenges.

However, if this position is to be maintained there is a need for a continuous and persistent effort. Uncritical use of antibiotics may mean that several antibiotics become ineffective, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria pose a threat to human health.
