  • Description:
    $589,379 Funding for AR Activities Fiscal Year 2017 Funding to local health departments: $522,000 - RAPID DETECTION & RESPONSE to emerging drug-resistant germs is critical to contain the spread of these infections. With 2016 funding, West Virginia increased its capacity to detect and respond to emerging threats. As a result, the HAI/AR program was able to respond to 93 HAI/AR outbreaks and increased its lab capacity to identify HAI/AR cases. $51,708 - 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. West Virginia received funding for this activity for the first time in 2017 to better prevent infections and protect patients. $15,671 - FOOD SAFETY projects protect communities by rapidly identifying drug-resistant foodborne bacteria to stop and solve outbreaks and improve prevention. West Virginia 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, West Virginia will begin simultaneously monitoring these isolates for resistance genes. When outbreaks are detected, local CDC-supported epidemiologists investigate the cases to stop spread. Publication date from document properties. West-Virginia-2017-CDC-AR-Investments.pdf
