The theme of this year’s World Antibiotics Awareness Week 13?19 November is “Seek advice from a qualified health care professional before taking antibiotics”. The aim of the Week is to advocate for the proper and responsible use of antibiotics to prevent their misuse. The rise of antibiotic resistance is leading to untreatable infections. Without urgent action we are heading for a future in which infections and minor injuries could once again kill.
