Antimicrobial resistance is one of the most significant global challenges to human health. This report examines antimicrobial medicines dispensing in the community across Australia, according to where people live. It reports trends by state and territory, Primary Health Network (PHN) and small geographical area.

It builds on the findings of the Third Australian Atlas of Healthcare Variation, and complements those of the AURA 2019 report.
