  • Description:
    Over 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths are caused by antibiotic resistance each year. Bacteria will inevitably find ways of resisting antibiotics spread by humans, which is why aggressive action is needed now to keep new resistance from developing and to prevent the resistance that already exists from spreading. An increase of $40 million is requested above the FY16 level in CDC’s FY 2017 Budget Request for year two of the AR Solutions Initiative. With this funding, CDC will expand the nation’s ability to detect, respond to, and prevent antibiotic resistant (AR) infections across healthcare settings and in the community potentially in all 50 states, 6 large cities, and Puerto Rico. The Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Solutions Initiative implements CDC’s activities under the National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (CARB). The Initiative builds robust networks to track and stop the spread of AR threats, protects the effectiveness of antibiotics we already have, and spurs development of new interventions that can transform the way public health responds to AR. ar-factsheet.pdf
