Pledge from CDC’s Dr. Frieden on Fighting Antibiotic Resistance


At CDC we track antibiotic
use and the spread of antibiotic-resistant
infections in the US and figure out new ways to stop spread. We’re working with doctors to
improve their prescribing habits and encouraging patients
to ask their provider if antibiotics are truly
needed for their care. CDC doctors and scientists
support the development of new antibiotics and
rapid diagnostic tests. It will take a global effort to
combat antibiotic resistance, and CDC has joined the fight.
