The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antibiotics APPG-A exists to raise the profile of antibiotic resistance, the need to preserve antibiotics through education on their appropriate use including non‐human uses, the lack of new treatments for bacterial infections and to help accelerate efforts to discover, research and develop new treatments.

The British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy serves as Secretariat to the APPG-A.

Chaired by Julian Sturdy MP, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antibiotics held its Annual General Meeting on 13 November 2018. Kevin Hollinrake MP, Nic Dakin MP, the Rt Hon Sir Kevin Barron MP, and The Lord Trees were elected as Co-Chairs. The Countess of Mar was elected to serve as Secretary, and the Baroness Masham of Ilton was elected as Treasurer.
