About the report
The Commission released AURA 2019: Third Australian report on antimicrobial use and resistance in human health, in May 2019.
The report increases the comprehensiveness of the picture of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), antimicrobial use and the appropriateness of antimicrobial prescribing in Australia, in hospitals, aged care, general practice and the community. A number of related reports and resources are also available including more detailed data on AMR and AU, and a consumer guide. AURA 2019 builds on the earlier national surveillance reports: AURA 2016 and AURA 2017.
