The DANMAP programme was established in 1995. The objectives of DANMAP are:
- to monitor the consumption of antimicrobial agents in food animals and humans in Denmark
- to monitor the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria isolated from food animals, food of animal origin (e.g. meat) and humans
- to study associations between antimicrobial consumption and antimicrobial resistance.
Each year the National Food Institute and Statens Serum Institut publish the DANMAP report with key figures from the previous year’s monitoring efforts. The reports are available for download from the DANMAP website.
The DANMAP programme is an active research collaboration between Statens Serum Institut and DTU, which is funded jointly by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education, the Ministry of Environment and Food, and the Ministry of Health.
