Bacteria- not humans or animals- become resistant to antibiotics.

WHO theme for World Antibiotic Awareness Week, 13-19 November 2017

Seek advice from a qualified healthcare professional before taking antibiotics.

Antibiotics are a precious resource, so it is important to get the right advice before taking them. This not only ensures you and your family get the best treatment, responsible use of antibiotics will also help reduce the threat of antibiotic resistance.
