The Problem

ResistanceOpen is a global map of antimicrobial resistance, based on aggregated publicly available and user submitted resistance data. It is an open-collaboration database, where independent sources can contribute data. We do not use individual level data.

The Solution

Our sources include publicly available online resistance data and user contributed data. Antibiotic resistance values displayed are based on weighted averages from all resistance indices (from the most recent available year) from all sources within the region of interest. For simplicity of interpretation, we have considered all ‘non-susceptible isolates’ as ‘resistant’. European data is currently based on ECDC EARS-Net surveillance data.
