Dr. Tom Chiller, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, opens his presentation with a quote from Dr. Tom Friedan, CDC Director, that brings focus to antimicrobial resistance: “We are all connected by the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.” Dr. Chiller emphasizes that antimicrobial resistance is a global problem and needs global solutions. These solutions need continual communication, consistent monitoring and reporting, and response teams to take action.
