University of Wollongong, Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District
Project type: 
Research
Status: 
In progress
Summary: 
With regional, rural and metropolitan areas and a well-defined coastal strip with a relatively stable population base, the Illawarra Shoalhaven region provides an ideal population to position itself as the ‘Framingham’ of antimicrobial resistance. This large scale project specifically aims to build a longitudinal study across the Illawarra Shoalhaven region to determine all of the factors that are drivers of antimicrobial resistance and to provide a platform for test interventions.
Timeframe: 
2017 - Ongoing
