National Institutes of Health Pakistan is celebrating World Antibiotic Awareness Week from 18-24 November 2021.
The theme of World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) 2021 is ‘Spread Awareness, Stop Resistance’. The overarching slogan of World Antimicrobial Awareness Week continues to be 'Antimicrobials: Handle with Care'.
The National WAAW 2021 campaign will encourage stakeholders, including policymakers, health care providers, and the general public to recognize that everyone can be an Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Awareness champion. Participants are encouraged to spread awareness about what AMR is, share stories about its consequences, and demonstrate how the actions of individuals, families, professionals, and communities affect the spread of AMR.
