World AMR Awareness Week 2023
Preventing antimicrobial resistance together
Every year, World AMR Awareness Week (WAAW) takes place between the 18th to 24th of November.
The aim of WAAW 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, the World Health Organisation has announced the theme for WAAW being, “Preventing antimicrobial resistance together” AMR is a threat to humans, animals, plants and the environment. It affects us all. That is why this year’s theme calls for cross sectoral collaboration to preserve the efficacy of antimicrobials. To effectively reduce AMR, all sectors must use antimicrobials prudently and appropriately, and take preventive measures to decrease the incidence of infections.
