World Antimicrobial Awareness Week
Updated: Nov 6, 2020
Antimicrobials: Handle with care
WAAW November 18th to 24th.
The core message for this year's World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, promoted by the WHO, is "Antimicrobials: Handle with care".
VirtualVet will host an international webinar on Thursday November 19th 2020 as part of our programme throughout the week promoting activities, projects and progress in tackling the scourge of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
While our focus is often on antibiotics within the group of antimicrobials, the same principles apply to all; these are powerful weapons in human and animal medicine and need to be protected.
Join us at 2pm Irish time on Thursday November 19th for an informed discussion of strategies for the agri-food industry as they work to respond to the challenges presented by AMR.
