On January 10, CDC released new data in its Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Investment Map showcasing CDC’s activities to slow antibiotic resistance and meet national goals. The updated map for 2018 includes more than 170 state-reported successes in addressing AR problems. These are the first comprehensive reports on state progress made following the first year of Congress’s unprecedented investment in CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Solutions Initiative. The map also features printable state- and city-specific fact sheets that describe how CDC invests in activities in those areas.
