What is MRSA?
MRSA (pronounced meer-sa) is an acronym for methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus – also known as the “Superbug” and can cause deadly infections in patients in healthcare facilities and in the community.
MRSA Survivors Network was founded in early 2003. MSN was the first consumer organization in the U.S. to raise the alarm concerning the MRSA epidemic and other multi-drug resistant healthcare-acquired infections. MSN has been the key catalyst for change on an international and national front with its groundbreaking crusade and mission to stop MRSA deaths and infections. MSN partners with healthcare professionals, healthcare companies and consumer organizations.
As the first advocacy organization for MRSA since 2003, we work hard to raise awareness, give support and educate the public about this disease. Your kind and generous donation will help to continue our outreach program to communities. So please consider donating today to help us with our important mission to prevent MRSA infections and saves lives. Everyone is at risk! Please SHARE the link below. Thank You!
The global theme for World MRSA Awareness Month is “The MRSA Epidemic – A Call to Action”. MRSA is the number one pathogen that kills more patients than AIDS and is spreading in the community. Healthcare-acquired MRSA infections are preventable and in the US are 84% of all MRSA infections, but in the US community-acquired (CA-MRSA) is not a reportable disease. We need transparency and the WHO must demand that all countries report MRSA infection and death rates and release the data on a public website.
“We can not change what we do not acknowledge”, states Jeanine Thomas, Founder of MRSA Survivors Network. Raise awarness in your community with downloadable posters and brochures at:
