  • Description:
    GLOBAL ACTION 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 CS254505A
