Treat Yourself Better

Posted on:

World Antimicrobial resistance awareness week runs from 18-24 November 2023 to improve the awareness of antimicrobial resistance. Antimicrobials, including antibiotics, are medicines used to prevent and treat infections. With the increase in use of antibiotics comes challenges around antimicrobial resistance (this is when bacteria change over time and no longer respond to antibiotics, making infections harder to treat and increasing the risk of disease spread, severe illness and death) and antibiotic induced infections. More than ever, antimicrobial stewardship is vital in supporting the appropriate use of antibiotics in our healthcare system today.
