Community Antimicrobial Resistance

The AURA Surveillance System collects data on antimicrobial resistance in the community to support a better understanding of local resistance issues and foster the development of targeted responses.

Australian Group on Antimicrobial Resistance

The Australian Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (AGAR) is a collaboration of clinicians and scientists from key microbiology laboratories around Australia and includes metropolitan and rural, and private and public sites. AGAR conducts targeted surveillance of selected pathogens that cause bloodstream infections and collects demographic, treatment and outcome data, and data on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) rates. AGAR is an important, core component of the Antimicrobial Use and Resistance (AURA) Surveillance System.
