The Center for Civic Partnerships
A support organization that strengthens individuals, organizations, and communities by facilitating learning, leadership development, and networking.
There are numerous articles about antibiotic resistance, appropriate antibiotic use, and other related issues. However, the Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work campaign has developed an abbreviated list of recommended readings to introduce people to the topic of appropriate antibiotic use. Recommended readings.
CDC distributes federal funds to state and local health departments for the development, implementation, and evaluation of local campaigns to promote appropriate antibiotic use. Beginning in 2000 with only 8 sites, CDC has increased the number of funded sites in recent years. View map of CDC-funded appropriate antibiotic use programs in 2012 and links to state programs.
Sites may receive partial or full funding to hire a program coordinator. Technical assistance to support these funded sites includes: identifying resources, sharing new scientific and educational information, facilitating networking and the formation of partnerships, and conducting monthly phone calls to track progress and identify program needs. If you have questions about applying for funding, please contact email@example.com.
