The aim of World Antimicrobial Awareness Week is to improve the understanding of what antimicrobial medicines are and how their misuse and overuse in humans, animals and the environment are accelerating the speed at which microbes (i.e. germs) are adapting to resist their effect. The most widely recognised antimicrobial medication being antibiotics which treat infections and diseases caused by bacteria.
This year’s WAAW theme which was announced by the World Health Organisation (WHO) is: “Spread awareness, stop resistance“ with the slogan remaining as “Antimicrobials: Handle with care.”
During this tweetchat we invite you to help us explore views from a one health perspective (i.e. human and animal health as well as considering environmental impacts in relation to AMR and the role of pharmacists).
