European Antibiotic Awareness Day
European Antibiotics Awareness Day (EAAD) is an annual event which takes on 18 November.
It was set up in 2008 by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. It is linked to the World Health Organisation's antibiotics awareness week, which runs each year from the the13th to the 19th of November.
We are involved to help highlight the issue of antibiotic resistance and the growing number of highly-resistant superbugs (bacteria that are hard to kill with antibiotics).
Support the campaign online using #KeepAntiboticsWorking and keep up to date with #AntibioticResistance
