Fwd [amr-nap] Materials for World Antibiotic Awareness Week 12-18 November

1 November, 2018

The message below is forwarded from Antimicrobial Resistance - National Action Plans forum:


In the lead up to World Antibiotic Awareness Week on 12 - 18 November we would like to invite you, as part of the AMR family, to get involved and share WHO/FAO/OIE global materials with your networks.

You can find WHO posters and infographics on the newly launched WAAW 2018 website (http://www.who.int/campaigns/world-antibiotic-awareness-week/en/) under ˜Advocacy Materials and on the WAAW WHO Trello board at: https://trello.com/b/Ymp4Behu/who-waaw-campaign

This year, the aim has been to provide greater flexibility to regions and countries to reflect their unique priorities and audiences by providing five "focus” days of tailored social media messaging. The approach is detailed in the '˜How-to-Guide' (http://www.who.int/docs/default-source/antibiotic-awareness-week/2018-wa...) with suggested messaging and corresponding visuals from animated GIFs and stills ­ in all UN languages.

In addition, the Tripartite (WHO/OIE/FAO) platform (http://apps.who.int/world-antibiotic-awareness-week/activities/en) with its global campaign map for community level events has been relaunched, along with an interactive game for public education and awareness.
