  • Description:
    $2,042,462 Funding for AR Activities Fiscal Year 2017 One of 10 sites for the Emerging Infections Program Funding to local health departments: $486,614 - RAPID DETECTION & RESPONSE to emerging drug-resistant germs is critical to contain the spread of these infections. With 2016 funding, New Mexico designed a surveillance system to facilitate reporting of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and more rapidly and comprehensively respond to emerging threats. This system can help track cases across healthcare facilities to ensure that infection control measures are in place. $568,772 - HAI/AR PREVENTION works best when public health and healthcare facilities partner together to implement targeted, coordinated strategies to stop infections and improve antibiotic use. With 2016 funding, New Mexico worked with academic partners to develop an antibiotic stewardship TeleECHO case- based learning curriculum to share and develop antibiotic stewardship expertise among pharmacists and physicians in small and rural hospitals. New Mexico also worked to improve the reporting of antibiotic use data by acute care hospitals in NHSN. $191,497 - FOOD SAFETY projects protect communities by rapidly identifying drug-resistant foodborne bacteria to stop and solve outbreaks and improve prevention. New Mexico implemented whole genome sequencing of Listeria, Salmonella, Campylobacter and E. coli isolates submitted to its lab and began uploading sequence data into PulseNet for nationwide monitoring of outbreaks and trends. In Fiscal Year 2018, New Mexico will begin simultaneously monitoring these isolates for resistance genes. When outbreaks are detected, local CDC-supported epidemiologists investigate the cases to stop spread. $795,579 - 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 bacteria and fungi.
