18 November, 2019

The 2019 edition of World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) will take place from November 18th – 24th.

This annual campaign, organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), aims to increase awareness of drug-resistant infections  and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance.
