  • Description:

    1. Improve Laboratory Capacity: Countries need medical labs to identify bacteria and choose the right drugs to treat them. When people get antibiotics without this testing, they:

    • Often get treatment that doesn’t help

    • Develop and spread resistant bacteria

    • Increase their risk for future resistant infections

    2. Develop National Tracking Programs: Countries need the infrastructure to collect resistance data and report results globally. This information is necessary to:

    • Target and measure prevention efforts

    • Drive policies that help stop spread

    3. Implement Antibiotic Stewardship Programs: To ensure antibiotics are here when we need them, they must be prescribed and taken correctly now.

    4. Expand Infection Control Programs: Improving infection control practices in healthcare settings is critical to prevent spread of antibiotic resistant germs.

    CDC’s proposed Antibiotic Resistance Solutions Initiative will:

    1. Allow standardized tracking of antibiotic resistance internationally

    2. Prevent antibiotic resistance

    3. Improve antibiotic prescribing and use

    4. Boost communication of antibiotic resistance threats
