Description

Since 1981, the Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics (APUA) has been dedicated to strengthening society’s defenses against infectious disease by promoting appropriate antimicrobial access and use and controlling antimicrobial resistance. With a network of affiliated chapters in over 65 countries, more than 33 of which are in the developing world, APUA stands as the world’s leading organization conducting focused antimicrobial resistance research, education, and advocacy at the grassroots and global levels. APUA’s goal is to improve antimicrobial policy and clinical practice so as to preserve the power of these lifesaving agents and improve treatment for patients with acute bacterial diseases, tuberculosis, AIDS, and malaria.
