Global Point Prevalence Survey (Global-PPS) of Hospital Antibiotic Use and Resistance
Following the success of the first survey in 2015 and thanks to bioMérieux’s continued sponsorship, the Global PPS is being repeated in 2017.
This global initiative provides a unique overview of the burden of antibiotic consumption and resistance rates. Data is now being collected from over 65 countries worldwide.
► It’s not too late ! Join the 2017 Global-PPS initiative today.
As world leader in microbiology, bioMérieux is dedicated to helping clinical labs provide actionable results faster to help prevent and manage multi-drug resistance and improve patient outcomes.
Rapid diagnostic test results provide antibiotic therapy guidance, supporting clinicians in the decision-making process. For example, procalcitonin-guided antibiotic therapy, as well as faster detection and reporting of antibiotic-resistant infections help avoid unnecessary antibiotic treatments and secondary drug effects, prevent the emergence of new resistant strains and reduce length of hospital stay, all while improving patient outcomes.
Our high-medical value diagnostic tests enable timely detection and diagnosis of healthcare-associated and multi-drug resistant infections.
We provide clinical laboratories with a wide range of diagnostic solutions for effective screening, infection control, outbreak management and antibiotic stewardship.
