CDC invests millions in antibiotic resistance efforts — where did the money go?

Congress gave the CDC $160 million in fiscal year 2016 to fight antibiotic resistance, and the federal agency gave most of that money to support state and local health departments, universities and healthcare partners, and laboratories in the fight.

Money invested in these states can go toward numerous projects and programs, including:

  • Healthcare-associated infections/antibiotic resistance detect and respond programs
  • HAI/AR prevention programs
  • Food safety
  • Antibiotic stewardship education and prevention programs
  • Gonorrhea rapid detection and response
