Annual World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (18.-24.11.2020) is a week under the theme “United to preserve antimicrobials”. This week is dedicated to raise awareness of antimicrobial resistance that can affect anyone, of any age, in any country. Antimicrobial, including antibiotic, resistance is a growing global threat that leads to infections becoming increasingly difficult or impossible to treat. World Antimicrobial Awareness Week aims to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to avoid further emergence and spread of resistance.
Point-of-care diagnostics is essential part of the solution in tackling antimicrobial resistance by promoting more appropriate use of antibiotics and supporting physicians to reach the right diagnosis and correct treatment decision quickly.
Stay tuned for inspiration and guidance on how you can take action on antibiotic resistance. More info also on our webpage resource. www.tackle.amr
