EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is one of the greatest threats to society, human and animal health, and economic prosperity. AMR happens when bacteria develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the CDC, cause at least 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths in the United States every year. This growing public health threat has prompted action on a number of fronts.

WHO WE ARE

The National Institute of Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education (NIAMRRE) addresses prioritized gaps in knowledge related to antimicrobial use, stewardship, and resistance. Our efforts help make progress on initiatives set out in the U.S. National Action Plan to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance, while utilizing a One Health approach.
