How much do you know about Antimicrobial Resistance? How big is this issue? and What are the needs to end it? ?How can you take an active role in the fight against Antimicrobial Resistance?
We are very excited to announce to you that the International Federation of Medical Students Association (IFMSA), the International Pharmaceutical Students Federation (IPSF), and the International Veterinary Students Association (IVSA) are joining efforts and actions against Antimicrobial Resistance.
As we believe that our strength comes from our members, we are calling you to take an action against Antimicrobial Resistance, to spread awareness in your communities and to be part of the change for which we are standing.
How are you going to do this? What resources do you need to actively educate, campaign and advocate on AMR?
This year World Antimicrobial Awareness Week will be held from the 15th till the 21st November!
Several days ago, you received access to the Manual and Supporting Tool-kits we prepared for you. You can find them here. Now it is time for YOU to take action!
