AURA 2021: Fourth Australian report on antimicrobial use and resistance in human health
The Commission released its Fourth Australian report on antimicrobial use and resistance in human health (AURA 2021) in August 2021 to continue provision of surveillance data and raise awareness of trends in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the hospital and community settings. AURA 2021 also highlights priorities for prevention and control of AMR and improvement of antimicrobial use (AU).
This report includes analyses of AMR and AU data predominantly collected in 2018 and 2019; with 2020 data from the National Alert System for Critical Antimicrobial Resistances (CARAlert), and 2020 data on dispensing of antibiotics under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
