Antibiotic Awareness Day - 18th November 2008

Europe celebrates `Antibiotic Awareness Day` on 18th November 2008.
We offer our best wishes to all those in Europe who are fighting for prolonging the utility of present day antibiotics by advising practices that will keep at minimum the development of Antibiotic resistance in the infectious bacteria.
IIMAR offers best wishes particularly to ReAct, our supporters in Europe who have taken up the gauntlet of making all out efforts to minimise the problem of Antibiotic Resistance all over the world.
Eurosurveillance has the whole issue this week devoted to antibiotic resistance, with focus on many encouraging examples of success of countermeasures taken up in Europe to reduce development of resistance in infectious bacteria to the antibiotics.
