WARRA: the evolving threat and impact of antimicrobial resistance to the Illawarra Shoalhaven population

The Wollongong Antimicrobial Resistance Research Alliance (WARRA) are conducting a longitudinal study across the Illawarra Shoalhaven region to look at the impact of antimicrobial resistance.

Lead organisation(s):

University of Wollongong, Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District

Project type:
In progress

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 will:

  • determine all of the factors that drive antimicrobial resistance
  • provide a platform for test interventions.
2017 - Ongoing
