World Antibiotic Awareness Week

13 November 2017 - 19 November 2017 Global Add to calendar
WHO

World Antibiotic Awareness Week aims to increase awareness of this important issue and to encourage best practices among the public, health workers, farmers, food producers, veterinarians and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance.

This year, World Antibiotic Awareness Week will be held from 13 to 19 November.

WHO is encouraging all Member States, health partners and students, and the public to join this campaign and help raise awareness of antibiotic resistance.

It is not too late to reduce the impact of antibiotic resistance and we all have a part to play in preserving the effectiveness of antibiotics.

Antibiotics are a precious resource—we need to handle them with care.
