The author emphasizes the importance of initiating studies that would resolve health problems created by the ESKAPE bugs. He explains that these bugs are representing paradigms of pathogenesis, transmission and resistance. Therefore, he asserts that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) should not be the only one to act against these bugs. He says that coordinated effort from other health agencies as well should also be encouraged.
