BREAKING NEWS FROM THE WHITEHOUSE!

 

 

On September 18, President Obama announced a new Executive Order and National Strategy for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (National Strategy) to carry out recommendations given by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). CDDEP Director Ramanan Laxminarayan was one of 15 key advisors on the concurrently-released PCAST report.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now has resources available online related to these announcements, including a webpage on the National Strategy, in addition to the publicly-available White House materials. A summary of all of these, with links to each page, is below. A table of contents for where to find information on specific topics is also available below.

Three Things to Know:

  • This year alone, at least two million Americans will become sickened by antibiotic resistant infections, and 23,000 Americans will die. 
  • Antibiotic resistance costs the U.S. over $20 billion in healthcare expenses each year. 
  • These important plans are part of a request for $30 million for CDC’s Detect and Protect Initiative and $14 million of the National Healthcare Safety Network to ramp up this fight. These strategies and the funds needed to implement them are a down-payment to improve the nation’s ability to tackle the biggest drug-resistant threats.  

 

New CDC Materials and Links Available for Use:

National Strategy Webpage    |    CDC Director Frieden’s Blog Post

Infographic: Examples of When Antibiotics are Urgent and Necessary

CDC’s Digital Press Kit
