PLATINEA is a multisectoral collaboration platform with the aim to preserve and enhance the value of existing antibiotics. PLATINEA consists of 15 partners from academia, authorities, industry and healthcare. The common goal is to ensure that antibiotics available today are used in the best way and to ensure accessibility to important antibiotics that risk disappearing from Sweden. The platform is divided into five work packages (WP 1-5) which handle various issues in the field of antibiotics
WP1) Antibiotics - Patient populations: to identify knowledge gaps regarding the use of existing antibiotics in different patient populations, the importance of each antibiotic, and the consequences and actions in case of any shortages.
WP2) Antibiotics - Pathogen (patient with infection): to understand how the use of existing antibiotics can be improved and optimized individually and for specific infections.
WP3) Antibiotics - Physician: to understand and influence the use of antibiotics in healthcare through clinical practice.
WP4) Antibiotic - Supplier: to understand which factors affect accessibility of antibiotics, and to identify which measures which in the in the long run can prevent shortages, mainly regarding every individual antibiotic supply chain.
WP5) Project management and administration, as well as coordination of WP1-4
