Why Fighting Fake Meds Means Fighting AMR


Drug resistance is under the spotlight these days, as World Antibiotic Awareness Week takes place from 12-18 November and the Wellcome Trust holds its Second Call to Action on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) on 19-20 November. You might have heard of the public health threat of AMR. But do you also know how falsified medicines can spread drug resistance?

We have created small infographics for you to share on your social media channels to make sure everybody stays safe from fake antibiotics and understands how they contribute to drug resistance. Because fighting #fakemeds means fighting AMR and both are serious public health threats that are everybody’s business.

Use our messages or write your own, download our images and post them on social media and tell us why you fight falsified antibiotics!

Make sure to tag @FightTheFakes and join the conversation using #fakemeds. We want to hear from you.
