The ETC research team, based at the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP), believes that while we can’t beat the bacteria, we can slow them down by recognizing that antibiotics are a natural resource that we must use conservatively if we want them to remain effective. By issuing regular research and commentary on topics such as health care-associated infections, trends in drug resistance, and the costs—both human and economic—posed by rising resistance rates, ETC is laying groundwork for the comprehensive solutions needed to combat this problem.
