Whats New In One Health This Week is US Antibiotic Awareness Week Antibiotic resistance is a One Health challenge. Antibiotics save lives, but any time they are used—in people, animals, or crops—they can contribute to the development of antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic-resistant infections affect both people and animals, which can increase the spread of resistance. Resistant germs can quickly spread across settings—communities, the food supply, healthcare facilities, the environment (e.g., soil, water), and around the world. This spread increases the burden of resistance and antibiotic-resistant infections. It is critical that the United States continue to take a global, One Health approach to combating antibiotic resistance. Join CDC in the fight against antibiotic resistance this week. Here’s how you can participate: Spread the word on social media using #USAAW19. Use CDC’s resources to raise awareness with colleagues, partners, and stakeholders. See the new Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, 2019, which includes the latest national death and infection estimates that underscore the continued threat of antibiotic resistance in the US. Join our ZOHU Call on Dec. 4, which will feature a presentation on CDC’s AR Threats Report. Find updates about One Health, new resources, and more on our website and follow @CDC_NCEZID on Twitter.
