Antibiotic resistance remains one of the biggest threats facing us today.

Why it is relevant to you: without effective antibiotics many routine treatments will become increasingly dangerous. Setting broken bones, basic operations, even chemotherapy and animal health all rely on access to antibiotics that work.

What we want you to do: It is important to remember that antibiotics do not treat or prevent viruses, including the one that causes COVID19

To slow resistance we need to cut the unnecessary use of antibiotics. We invite the public, students and educators, farmers, the veterinary and medical communities and professional organisations, to become Antibiotic Guardians.

Call to action: Choose one simple pledge about how you’ll make better use of antibiotics and help save these vital medicines from becoming obsolete.

Antibiotic Guardian supports the UK Antimicrobial Resistance strategy, European Antibiotic Awareness Day and World Antibiotic Awareness Week
