  • Description:
    $1,109,581 Funding for AR Activities Fiscal Year 2017 Funding to local health departments: $397,540 - RAPID DETECTION & RESPONSE to emerging drug-resistant germs is critical to contain the spread of these infections. With 2016 funding, Alabama rapidly responded to facility requests for assistance with HAI/AR outbreak investigations in 136 healthcare facilities. Each facility received written guidance, including recommended infection control measures, equipping those facilities to prevent future outbreaks. $199,450 - FOOD SAFETY projects protect communities by rapidly identifying drug-resistant foodborne bacteria to stop and solve outbreaks and improve prevention. In Fiscal Year 2018, Alabama will ramp up testing to include whole genome sequencing of all Listeria, Salmonella, Campylobacter and E. coli isolates and simultaneously monitor these isolates for resistance genes. States upload the sequence data into PulseNet for nationwide monitoring of outbreaks and trends. When outbreaks are detected, local CDC-supported epidemiologists investigate the cases to stop spread. Funding to universities & healthcare partners: $512,591 - UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA AT BIRMINGHAM: Innovative Prevention & Tracking. Using samples from eight hospitals, researchers will determine the prevalence of macrolide antibiotic resistance in Mycoplasma pneumoniae, how it spreads and how it affects patients.
