Tomorrow begins World Antibiotic Awareness Week. We often discuss antibiotics and their importance in Clean, Treat, Protect: First Aid for cuts and scrapes an wounds but antibiotics play a bigger part in healthcare than just this. This week, the World Health Organization (WHO) endeavors to education all that antibiotics are a precious resource and should be preserved. They should be used to treat bacterial infections, only when prescribed by a certified health professional. Antibiotics should never be shared and the full course of treatment should be completed – not saved for the future. WHO_WorldAntibioticAwarenessWeek_webBanner_V11 World Antibiotic Awareness Week aims to increase awareness of global antibiotic resistance and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance.
