  • Description:
    $2,411,720 Funding for AR Activities Fiscal Year 2016 One of 10 sites for the Emerging Infections Program $573,719 : HAI/AR DETECT & RESPOND PROGRAMS quickly detect and then contain the spread of resistant infections, protecting patients from new resistance threats. CDC and states are working together to scale up programs and HAI prevention infrastructure to identify, contain, and prevent HAIs, including those infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Programs will use data for local response. All states and five major cities/territories will receive support and lab capacity to track and stop the "nightmare bacteria," carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE). $350,446 : FOOD SAFETY projects protect communities by rapidly identifying drug-resistant foodborne bacteria to stop and solve outbreaks and improve prevention. To improve food safety, CDC works to rapidly identify and respond to drug-resistant foodborne bacteria and outbreaks by using whole genome sequencing and increasing lab testing of pathogens like Salmonella and Campylobacter. CDC promotes responsible antibiotic use in food-producing animals. $1,027,834 - EMERGING INFECTIONS PROGRAM (EIP) sites improve public health by translating population-based surveillance and research activities into informed policy and public health practice. CDC’s EIP network is a national resource for surveillance, prevention, and control of emerging infectious diseases—like antibiotic-resistant infections.
