World Antibiotic Awareness Week Held by SMA

November, World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) aims to increase global awareness of antibiotic resistance and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance.

Since their discovery, antibiotics have served as the cornerstone of modern medicine. However, the persistent overuse and misuse of antibiotics in human and animal health have encouraged the emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance, which occurs when microbes, such as bacteria, become resistant to the drugs used to treat them.

The theme of the 2018 year is

Change Can’t Wait. Our Time with Antibiotics is Running Out

Somali Medical Association organized very interactive and rich awareness event for WAAW. The event was attended by the general public, senior doctors, junior doctors and medical students. This event was particularly interactive with many educational materials given to the attendees.

The WAAW event was filled with powerful presentation and panel discussions that increased the awareness of the general public and health care givers. The attendees were allowed to raise their questions regarding the presentations and at the end of the panel discussions. The media was also there in order to propagate the awareness raised from the event to the community.
