Antibiotic Awareness

Antibiotics Awareness Week

Doctors are being urged to take a more critical look before prescribing antibiotics as antibiotic resistance remains one of the biggest global threats to public health, the European Antibiotic Awareness Day 2014. Leaders from medical, veterinary and pharmaceutical professions gathered for the fourth annual antibiotic awareness event, aimed at driving further change in both public and professional behaviours and norms around antibiotic consumption.
