European Antibiotic Awareness Day - 18th November

Public Health England (PHE) has nominated the 18th November 2014 as European Antibiotic Awareness Day.

On this day they want everyone in the UK, the public and the medical community to become Antibiotic Guardians and to pledge to cut the use of unnecessary antibiotics. The initiative has been launched in collaboration with the Department of Health’s Expert Advisory Committee on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infections (ARHAI); the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), and the Devolved Administrations and professional bodies/ organisations involved in the ‘One Health’ initiative.
