    • Description:
      $12,148,83 Funding for AR Activities Fiscal Year 2016

      $693,820 (Includes funding to Chicago) : 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).

      $1,263,252 (Includes funding to Chicago): HAI/AR PREVENTION PROGRAMS work with partners to prevent infection and contain spread of germs between patients and healthcare facilities, and increase antibiotic stewardship education, to protect patients. With state HAI/AR prevention programs, CDC will implement more empowered prevention networks— where public health and healthcare work together—to better prevent infections, contain spread, and improve antibiotic use. Of the factors contributing to antibiotic resistance, the most important one we can change is inappropriate antibiotic use. CDC works to improve antibiotic use by increasing education and awareness of the importance of antibiotic use among providers and the public.

      $154,362 (Includes funding to Chicago): 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.

      $952,044 : GONORRHEA RAPID DETECTION & RESPONSE works with state and local partners to be ready to stop the spread of resistant gonorrhea in high risk communities.

      Gonorrhea is resistant to most antibiotics and only one treatment option remains. CDC is developing local and state health department epidemiological and laboratory capacity to more rapidly detect and effectively respond to antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea
