More than 60 U.S. lawmakers urge House appropriators for more funds to address antimicrobial resistance

  07 May 2021

In a call backed by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), a bipartisan collection of more than 60 United States representatives wrote to House appropriators last week, asking for increased federal resources to address the growing threat of antimicrobial resistant (AMR) infections.

While AMR infections have been growing increasingly prevalent for years, it is a concern that has become more of a focus as the world grapples with a pandemic that has already shown itself capable of rapid change and adaptation. AMR infections are more resistant to available treatments, making them more of a threat for those already in need.
