ANTIMICROBIAL WEEK PROGRAMME
The Department of Pharmacology, SUTAMS is organizing a webinar on 24/11/22 at 7pm in connection with Antibiotic awareness week 18-24 November. The WHO theme for this year is PREVENTING ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE TOGETHER.
Antibiotics and other antimicrobial medicines became ineffective due to drug resistance and infections became increasingly difficult or impossible to treat. World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) is a global campaign that is celebrated annually to improve awareness and understanding of AMR through effective communication, education and training. As per WHO, all sectors should be encouraged to the prudent use of antimicrobials. Also, preventive measures addressing AMR should be strengthened by working together collaboratively through a One Health approach.
