World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2019
The theme of World Antibiotic Awareness Week, from 18 to 24 November 2019, is “The future of antibiotics depends on us all”. The campaign aims to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance and encourage best practices among communities, policy-makers and health workers in both the human and animal health fields.
Pledge to become a WHO hero against antibiotic resistance
Our antimicrobial resistance hero initiative gives you an opportunity to fight antimicrobial resistance to ensure that antibiotics remain effective in treating infections and saving lives. This year, we have expanded the scope for heroes into four categories – communities, physicians, pharmacists and veterinarians.
