IDSA coordinated a letter,
joined by 47 other health groups, to President-elect Trump urging that federal
efforts to combat antimicrobial resistance be maintained in the years ahead.
The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) applauds the Senate for passing the 21st Century Cures Act earlier today. The soon-to-be law makes regulatory changes and new investments that will undoubtedly save lives in the years ahead. IDSA is particularly pleased that the legislation contains provisions that help combat antibiotic resistance as well as the opioid epidemic that is spurring a surge in new HIV and hepatitis C infections. The bill also recognizes that our ability to address future public health threats is enhanced by acting now to support young biomedical researchers.
