World AMR Awareness Week: November 18-24, 2024 2024

Nearly 3 million people are infected with an antimicrobial-resistant infection each year, resulting in over 35,000 deaths. Antibiotic resistance is caused by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics in general and the overuse of selected agents in particular. Appropriate use of antibiotics in people and animals is a key solution to addressing the threat of antibiotic resistance. Education about appropriate antibiotic use and changed attitudes and practices of healthcare professionals, veterinarians, and the general public alike will contribute to appropriate antibiotic prescribing and use.
