General comments for comparison of antimicrobial consumption data from different countries and/or years:
Total care includes data both from the hospital sector and community (primary care sector) and overestimates the figures when used for reporting for the community sector.
Some countries report reimbursement data that do not include consumption of antimicrobials obtained without prescription and other non-reimbursed courses.
