2017 Antibiotic Awareness Week Toolkit
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has prepared this toolkit to help you participate in various activities throughout the year, and specifically during Antibiotic Awareness Week from November 13-18, 2017. It includes key messages, social media messages, information about new activities, and links to resources from PHAC and other programs.
Antimicrobial resistance, also known as antibiotic resistance, is a growing problem that affects all of us. Only when we all work together with a shared understanding of the challenges we face will we be able to slow the spread of antimicrobial resistance and protect our access to these life-saving tools. The attached kit is a great resource for veterinary professionals to better understand antimicrobial resistance and what they can do to raise awareness and promote responsible antimicrobial usage.
