European Antibiotic Awareness Day on 18 November

The annual European antibiotic awareness day, run by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDPC) aims to raise awareness about the increasing threat to public health of antibiotic resistance within the EU and about how to use antibiotics responsibly.

The initiative, targeted at the general public and the primary care providers, seeks to support efforts at national level to reduce unnecessary antibiotic use in hospitals through the development and dissemination of educational materials promoting prudent antibiotic use.
