Antibiotics are humanity's key defense against disease-causing microbes. The growing prevalence of antibiotic resistance threatens a future where these drugs can no longer cure infections and killer epidemics run rampant. The Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics (APUA) has been the leading global non-governmental organization fighting to preserve the effectiveness of antimicrobial drugs since 1981. With affiliated chapters in over 66 developed and developing countries, we conduct research, education and advocacy programs to control antimicrobial resistance and ensure access to effective antibiotics for current and future generations. For more information on antibiotic resistance research, visit our partner lab at the Center for Adaptation Genetics and Drug Resistance.

"Antibiotics are uniquely societal drugs because individual use affects others in the community and environment.  Better stewardship, incentives, and establishment of a special regulatory category will improve how they are used, marketed, and developed through incentives to industry."

Stuart B. Levy, M.D.
President of APUA, professor at Tufts University School of Medicine

From the IOM 25th Anniversary Symposium (1996) and The Antibiotic Paradox (2002)
