Current State Plan Progress and Data: One Health Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative

Current State Plan Progress and Data

One Health Minnesota Antibiotic Stewardship Five-Year Strategic Plan (PDF)
This strategic plan provides direction for state antibiotic stewardship activities and encourages collaboration across One Health stakeholders. It is intended to be a ‘living’ document, with progress regularly reviewed by partners and plan amendments made as needed.

Notes and Progress Updates


An antibiogram is the compilation of antimicrobial susceptibilities of selected pathogens isolated from a specific human or animal population. Statewide, we have a human antibiogram of isolates sent to the Public Health Laboratory at the Minnesota Department of Health. The University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center releases an antibiogram of bacterial isolates in their veterinary patients. These two antibiograms are available at the links below. In addition, for their own daily use, many health care facilities produce tailored antibiograms that reflect their specific patient population.

Antibiograms can serve as valuable tools in guiding therapy choices.

National Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network

The Minnesota Department of Health's Public Health Laboratory is one of seven regional laboratories that make up the national Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network (ARLN), established by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As part of the ARLN, Minnesota plays a key role in helping the nation understand and combat antibiotic resistance.
