World MRSA Day was initiated, created and announced in January, 2009 by Jeanine Thomas, President and Founder of MRSA Survivors Network and is the official organizer for World MRSA Day. Jeanine Thomas founded MRSA Survivors Network in 2003 (a non-profit organization) and was the first advocacy group in the U.S. to raise the alarm about the MRSA epidemic and other healthcare-acquired infections. With the creation of World MRSA Day, the hope is to raise the awareness of MRSA around the globe and to activate survivors, communities, governments, healthcare officials and personnel to join together to stop the spread of this preventable disease.
