European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) on 18th November 2011 is a Europe-wide public health initiative aimed at encouraging responsible use of antibiotics. The initiative is supported in England by the Department of Health and its advisory committee on antimicrobial resistance and health care associated infections. To support European Antibiotic Awareness Day and the promotion of prudent antibiotic use, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) have created information and educational materials for use in hospitals and primary care settings and these have been adapted for use in England. Here you will find these and other materials that can be used to help support EAAD and promote responsible use of antibiotics.
