17/11/2015 / Maison de la Paix, the Graduate Institute, Geneva
Graduate Institute Geneva This event will take place in the context of the first World Antibiotic Awareness Week, which will be held from 16 to 22 November 2015. The campaign 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. Following the adoption of the global action plan on antimicrobial resistance at the 2015 World Health Assembly, a secretariat was established within the World Health Organization to coordinate an Organization-wide approach to antimicrobial resistance, working with all WHO programmes carrying out technical activities required for implementation of the global action plan.
