Antibiotic Resistance Threats Report Shows Impacts of Federal Investments, Continued Gaps

Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA)

The Antibiotic Resistance Threats Report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Prevention and Control today shows that while recent federal investments to combat antibiotic resistance have had meaningful impacts, the continued spread of infections that are not effectively treated by existing medicines pose deadly threats to patients and public health. As physicians and scientists on the front lines of a growing public health crisis, the Infectious Diseases Society of America urges federal policy makers to respond to the report’s warning with investments and commitment to turning the tide of antibiotic resistance.

And one in five say that in the past, they’ve engaged in a risky practice: taking leftover antibiotics without checking with a medical professional.
