Nethmap MARAN reports antibiotic resistance

MARAN reports

In 2009, the Dutch government launched a programme with the primary aim of reducing antibiotic resistance. To achieve this aim, it is important to make the antibiotic use explicit –measurable – and to report on this use annually.

From 2002, veterinary antibiotic use is published annually in a MARAN report. This stands for Monitoring of Antimicobial Resistance and antibiotic usage in Animals in the Netherlands. Since 2012, the combination has been made with the NethMap report with similar data in human healthcare.

According to the most recent NethMap/MARAN report, the number of infections in humans with resistant bacteria has remained stable.

The use of antibiotics in livestock farming has fallen sharply since 2009. Between 2009 and 2017, sales of veterinary antibiotics fell by 63.4%.
