    • Description:
      $1,851,476 Funding for AR Activities Fiscal Year 2017 Funding to local health departments: $301,521 - RAPID DETECTION & RESPONSE to emerging drug-resistant germs is critical to contain the spread of these infections. With 2016 funding, Ohio identified the 10% of counties with the most concerning antibiotic prescribing rates. The HAI/AR program provided educational materials on appropriate antibiotic prescribing to healthcare providers in those counties and, in the future, will work with schools and local health departments to target areas for improvement. $54,776 - 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. Ohio received funding for this activity for the first time in 2017 to better prevent infections and protect patients. $323,966 - FOOD SAFETY projects protect communities by rapidly identifying drug-resistant foodborne bacteria to stop and solve outbreaks and improve prevention. Ohio 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, Ohio will begin simultaneously monitoring these isolates for resistance genes. When outbreaks are detected, local CDC-supported epidemiologists investigate the cases to stop spread. Funding to Universities and healthcare partners: $395,138 - CLEVELAND VA MEDICAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION FOUNDATION: Innovative Prevention & Tracking. Researchers will use data to show how C. difficile germs spread and to develop more effective control measures. This project will grow our understanding of C. difficile colonization and infection. $693,598 - THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY: Healthcare, Agriculture, and the Non-Healthcare Environment. The study will evaluate potential discharge of antibiotic resistant bacteria from hospital sewage and test a technology to prevent it. $82,477 - THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY: Global Expertise & Capacity Enhancements. CDC’s global work to combat AR prevents the importation of AR threats into the United States. Experts are working in Ethiopia to combat AR by conducting standardized lab assessments and improving local capacity to detect and prevent AR threats. Publication date from document properties.
