Abstract: The Public Health Agency of Sweden published a report in 2017 listing 34 antibiotics that risk disappearing from the Swedish market, all with significant value to the Swedish healthcare. The aim of this report was to investigate the availability risk, why these risks occur and identify potential patterns. Ten different aspects were developed with different impact on the availability to establish the grade of availability risk for each of the analysed antibiotics. The antibiotics were compiled in a table and were graded as low, medium or high risk. The results showed that nine of the antibiotics have a high risk of disappearing from the Swedish market while ten respectively 20 were graded as medium and low risk. Patterns were found regarding the difference in formulations and the economic aspects.
