Who is APUA?
Since 1981, the Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics (APUA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has been the leading global non-governmental organization whose mission is to contain antibiotic resistance and preserve the effectiveness of antimicrobials. With chapters in 65 countries, APUA works to improve antibiotic access and use with the goal of ensuring effective infectious disease treatments for generations to come. Under the leadership of Dr. Stuart B. Levy, Professor of Molecular Biology and Microbiology at Tufts University School of Medicine, APUA works with the CDC, WHO and other professional societies to conduct research, surveillance and education projects to improve clinical practice and inform public policy. APUA programming is guided by an advisory board of infectious disease experts and disseminated through a global network of affiliated chapters comprised of scientists, health care providers, consumers and policy makers worldwide. The clinical and scientific APUA Newsletter has been publishing antibiotic resistance trends and suggested interventions since 1983.
