This overview gives information on navigating for English-language Web sites on antimicrobial resistance. Web sites were gathered on the basis of personal files, articles, and an exhaustive Web search of cross-links from other Web pages. The Web sites were categorized according to users' needs into 5 broad categories, as follows: comprehensive Web sites, with information on all aspects of antimicrobial resistance-related issues; Web sites with patient information about antimicrobial resistance and about methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, in particular; Web sites covering current multinational surveillance programs; Web sites on prevention of antimicrobial resistance in health care facilities; and Web sites on control of antimicrobial resistance in the community. We compiled a selection of Web sites that seemed to be useful as starting points for physicians, epidemiologists, researchers, or patients interested in this topic.
