Article: 54/4601

On 17 November 2020, to coincide with European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) and World Antibiotic Awareness Week, Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infection (ARHAI) Scotland published the ‘Scottish One Health Antimicrobial Use and Antimicrobial Resistance (SONAAR) in 2019’ report.

This report provides information relating to antimicrobial use and resistance in a range of human and animal infections in Scotland. ARHAI Scotland will continue to expand these areas in future years, reflecting support for the ‘One Health’ approach to containing antimicrobial resistance.

The report is intended to support planning, prioritisation and evaluation of initiatives to optimise antimicrobial use and to minimise antimicrobial resistance.
