Investment Map: Funding in Your State
The Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Investment Map showcases CDC activities in the U.S. and abroad to combat antibiotic resistance. Users can get printable global-, state-, and city-specific fact sheets that describe how CDC is investing directly in the response to antibiotic resistance at each level.
Through these investments, CDC is transforming how the nation and world combat and slow antibiotic resistance. For example, CDC is
- Equipping all states and several large cities with lab expertise through CDC’s AR Lab Network and on-the-ground experts to contain outbreaks of resistant germs
- Improving antibiotic use across healthcare and veterinary settings globally to improve antibiotic use
- Enhancing detection and tracking of resistant pathogens for local prevention of healthcare-associated, foodborne, and community threats such as drug-resistant tuberculosis, ESBL-producing Enterobacterales, and gonorrhea
- Spurring innovation through research investments using a One Health approach to identify and implement new ways to prevent antibiotic resistance globally
- Informing the development of new drugs and diagnostics by sharing isolates (pure samples of a germ) and CDC sequencing data
The map currently shows fiscal year 2021 extramural funds that support CDC’s antibiotic resistance activities. CDC distributed the largest extramural portion of funding to support all 50 state health departments, several local health departments, and Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The map also includes fact sheets highlighting CDC’s innovation work with partners to combat antibiotic resistance. The information is updated yearly.
