Event Title
Drug Development Considerations for the Prevention of Healthcare-Associated Infections
August 30, 2022

August 30, 2022


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are co-sponsoring this public virtual workshop.

Discussions are planned around the following topics/areas:

  • The current state of development of pathogen-directed products used to prevent healthcare-associated infections
  • Evidence supporting decolonization and pathogen reduction (in colonized patients) as a strategy to prevent infection and transmission of antimicrobial-resistant healthcare-associated pathogens
  • Antimicrobial resistance threats as potential targets for decolonization and pathogen reduction
  • Challenges and potential approaches to drug development and registration of products for the prevention of healthcare-associated infections


During online registration, you may indicate if you wish to present during a public comment session or participate in a specific session, and which topic(s) you wish to address. We will do our best to accommodate requests to make public comments. Individuals and organizations with common interests are urged to consolidate or coordinate their presentations, and request time for a joint presentation, or submit requests for designated representatives to participate in the focused sessions. All requests to make oral presentations must be received by August 15, 2022, and must be emailed to Sunita Shukla (Sunita.Shukla@fda.hhs.gov) with the title and brief description of your topic.

We will determine the amount of time allotted to each presenter (no more than 5 minutes) and the approximate time each oral presentation is to begin. We will select and notify participants, if selected as presenters, by August 18, 2022. If selected for presentation, any presentation materials must be emailed to Sunita Shukla (Sunita.Shukla@fda.hhs.gov) no later than August 24, 2022. No commercial or promotional material will be permitted to be presented during the workshop.


All meeting materials—including agenda, panelist affiliations/disclosures, speaker slides, workshop recording, and transcript—will be posted shortly before and/or after the completion of the workshop. Please check this CDC site regularly for updates.
