June 8, 2018—American Public Health Association (APHA) Organizations’ letter to U.S. Congress Appropriations Committee leaders in support of strong investments in antimicrobial resistance in FY 2019 appropriations bills using ONE HEALTH APPROACH - Saturday, July 07, 2018

June 8, 2018—American Public Health Association (APHA) Organizations’ letter to U.S. Congress Appropriations Committee leaders in support of strong investments in antimicrobial resistance in FY 2019 appropriations bills using ONE HEALTH APPROACH

3rd paragraph,

“The report also highlights the need for continued and robust funding for AMR given that nationwide testing last year documented 221 cases of so-called “nightmare bacteria,” that can spread resistance to last-resort antibiotics. Robust, sustained investment in multi-agency One Health efforts is vital to combat AMR domestically and globally including prevention, antimicrobial stewardship, surveillance and data collection, research, and development of urgently needed new products including antimicrobial drugs, diagnostics, vaccines and alternative treatments.”

 

11th paragraph,

“Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Agriculture Experts agree that a One Health approach, including both human and animal health, is essential for combating antimicrobial resistance. We urge funding of $54 million for the Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria initiative at FDA to support FDA’s efforts to address public health concerns associated with antimicrobial drug use in animals, and better protect antibiotic effectiveness for both human and animal populations. This funding is needed now more than ever, with estimates that antibiotic use in humans and livestock will rise by 50% before 2030. FDA would be able to better collaborate with consumers, producers, veterinarians, and other agencies to monitor AMR through the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) as well as other initiatives by the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine to address AMR.”
