Antibiotic Guardian Awards 2020
On Thursday 26 November 2020, the fifth Antibiotic Guardian award was held to honour the efforts of healthcare professionals around the UK and around the world in combating antimicrobial resistance. These awards are part of the ongoing initiative of the Antibiotic Guardian, led by Public Health England in partnership with administrations and professional bodies devolved from the United Kingdom.
The goal of the Antibiotic Guardian campaign is to increase involvement
and raise public and healthcare professionals’ awareness of how we can slow down the production of resistant bacteria to stop the overuse of antibiotics and their needless use.
Thus, by selecting a pledge on the dedicated website, groups including students and educators, farmers, families, veterinary, medical, nursing and pharmacy practitioners and local and national organisations can sign up to become Antibiotic Guardians.
