Request for Information

Registration for the Presidential Advisory Council on Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria (PACCARB) Public Meeting - March 30 -31, 2016

Responses must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on January 7, 2019, to be considered.

To inform the PACCARB’s deliberation on recommended priorities to consider in the USG’s process of developing the next National Action Plan (NAP) for Combatting Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria (CARB) 2020-2025, please review the five goals in the current NAP, and provide the following information:

  • In the context of the existing five goals, what new priorities should the federal government focus on in the next NAP for CARB—that are not already included in the current plan—and why are they the most important? Your response can cover a range of priority areas for human, animal, and environmental health, including surveillance, research and development, stewardship practices, infection prevention and control practices, and/or other areas for consideration.

In preparing your response, please be sure to:

  • Consider how your response fits into the existing One Health paradigm, and how your proposed priority should be further pursued by the U.S. Government;
  • Provide an answer that is feasible and actionable by the U.S. Government;
  • Limit your responses to no more than two priorities for each of the five goals (a maximum of 10 priorities can be submitted);
  • Summarize your response for each priority area in 250 words or less, including its scientific justification;
  • Indicate whether your response is relevant domestically, internationally, or both by checking the appropriate boxes; 
  • Indicate the domain(s) to which your response applies—human, animal, and/or environmental health by checking the appropriate boxes;
