To coincide with World Antibiotic Awareness Week, Health Protection Scotland (HPS) has today (13 November 2018) published the ‘Scottish One Health Antimicrobial Use and Antimicrobial Resistance Report’ (SONAAR).

The report tracks the changes in antimicrobial use in humans in Scotland and on the levels of resistance in a broad range of human and animal infections, including for the first time resistance in both candidaemia and the sexually transmitted organism Mycoplasma genitalium.

The report brings together human antimicrobial prescribing with human and animal antimicrobial resistance data, providing an overview of the current situation in Scotland for the public, professionals and policy makers.
