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 that conduct targeted surveillance of selected pathogens and collect demographic, treatment and outcome data, and data on antimicrobial resistance rates. AGAR is an important core component of the Antimicrobial Use and Resistance Surveillance System (AURA).
