United States: national strategy for combating antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Detecting, preventing and controlling antibiotic resistance requires a coordinated effort.

Monday 22 September 2014 (3 years 8 months ago)

Detecting, preventing and controlling antibiotic resistance requires a coordinated effort. To support the National Strategy for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria, CDC is working to address the threat in these four areas:

  • Slow the development of resistant bacteria and prevent the spread of resistant infections.
  • Strengthen national one-health surveillance efforts to combat resistance.
  • Advance development and use of rapid and innovative diagnostic tests for identification and characterization of resistant bacteria.
  • Improve international collaboration and capacities for antibiotic resistance prevention, surveillance, control and antibiotic research and development.

These important plans are part of CDC's request for $30 million for CDC's Detect and Protect Initiative and $14 million for the National Healthcare Safety Network to combat resistant bacteria. These strategies and the funds needed to implement them are a down-payment to improve our country’s ability to start tackling our biggest drug-resistant threats.
