Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, is an important public health issue. MRSA can cause a variety of infections, from common skin infections to life-threatening infections, both inside and outside the health care setting. We're working with partners to better understand these infections and prevent them from spreading in our communities.
