CDC AR factsheet: Facilities work together to protect patients

According to the latest CDC Vital Signs released today, improved infection control and antibiotic prescribing could save 37,000 lives over five years. The August 2015 issue of Vital Signs includes mathematical modeling that projects increases in drug-resistant infections and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) without immediate, nationwide improvements in infection control and antibiotic prescribing.
The report shows that a coordinated approach—that is, health care facilities and health departments in an area working together—could prevent up to 70 percent of life-threatening carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)infections over five years.

$264M: A Comprehensive Response

Antibiotic resistance (AR) is one of the most pressing health threats facing the world today. View the infographics below for more information on how the fiscal year 2016 (FY16) budget provides critical increased investment in CDC programs to combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria. 
CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Solutions Initiative is part of the broader national strategy to combat AR and would facilitate action in every state, accelerate outbreak detection and prevention innovation, and improve antibiotic use and reduce antibiotic resistance. The proposed $264 million for CDC provides a comprehensive approach that fully implements CDC’s portions of the National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria[PDF - 63 pages], which outlines steps for implementing the National Strategy for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (CARB)[PDF - 37 pages] and the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology report. See more information on Federal efforts to combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria on CDC’s Federal Engagement in Antimicrobial Resistance page.
