Low- and middle-income countries continue to import significant amounts of the last-resort antibiotic for growth promotion and disease prevention in food-producing animals.
Superbugs & You Season 3 is here! The latest episode on treatment-resistant neonatal sepsis highlights how the infection prevention strategies, diagnostics, and therapeutics can make a difference in the smallest of patients. Despite great improvements in mortality for children under 5, sepsis remains a leading cause of death in young children. Guests include Kamala Thiagarajan, Phoebe Williams, and Seamus O'Brien.
A CIDRAP-ASP three-paper series that explores the emerging role of outcomes research in public health. In this first paper, we will define outcomes research and explore how the concept has evolved over time and can be applied to research.

Our antimicrobial resistance factsheet
Antimicrobial resistance occurs when microbes, such as bacteria, evolve the ability to survive exposure to medicines previously used to treat them. Visit the antimicrobial resistance factsheet to learn more.
The Antimicrobial Resistance Toolkit
We developed a toolkit aimed at community practitioners and patients to provide basic information on antimicrobial resistance and responsible use of antibiotics. You can view and download the Toolkit here.
One Health Antimicrobial Stewardship
We are currently developing educational modules to raise awareness and increase the knowledge base about practical antibiotic stewardship implementation among veterinarians.
This study assesses the incidence of invasive mold infection at four hospitals—one of which is a cancer care facility—before and after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Houston, Texas.
The concept of ‘One Health’ is a framework that recognizes the interconnectedness of human and animal health, and the environment. Yet, the One Health concept often remains on paper. According to the authors of this study, the integration of WASH measures with farm biosecurity could reduce the spread of AMR in communities.
Results of this study suggest that antibiotic stewardship interventions would be more impactful if they both targeted reducing antibiotic use and controlling the exchange of resistance genes between ecosystems.
