According to the World Health Organization (WHO) antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today. The misuse and overuse of antimicrobials, the poor access to quality, affordable medicines, vaccines and diagnostics and falsified and substandard (SF) antibiotics are among the causes of AMR.
Join us between 18-24 November to spread awareness and stop resistance for World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW)! You can use the resources below to spread the word about the dangers of SF medicines and their link to AMR.
