Empowering the fight against Antimicrobial Resistance: MedTech Europe’s Contribution to Antibiotic Awareness Day and World AMR Week

Posted on 09.11.2023

The European Antibiotics Awareness Day (18 November) and World Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Awareness Week (18-24 November) are fast approaching. This is an important time to raise awareness and learn how we can all play a role in combatting this ‘silent pandemic.’

Did you know that medical technologies can help prevent and control infections? Or that our solutions support patients’ journeys in fighting some of the toughest drug-resistant infections?

MedTech Europe is eager to showcase the value that the medical technologies industry brings to the global effort to combat AMR and healthcare-associated infections. This is why, starting on 18 November until 24 November, we will be joining the social media campaign. You too can via your social channels using the hashtags #AntibioticResistance and #WAAW.

To learn more about the role of medical technologies in the fight against AMR and healthcare-associated infections, visit our website, and follow the campaign via our X and LinkedIn channels, starting on 18 November.
