World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW)
25th November 2022
World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) is celebrated from 18th-24th November every year. This year's theme is Preventing Antimicrobial Resistance Together. In this blog Dr Tasneem Khan shares information about antimicrobial stewardship and the Lowering AntiMicrobial Prescribing (LAMP) campaign.
A new video about antibiotic resistance has been developed in partnership with the NHS West Yorkshire ICB. The video outlines what people can do to make sure antibiotics keep working for everyone, and it is hoped this message will be shared widely.
