The European Antibiotic Awareness Day is an annual European public health initiative which aim is to raise awareness about the threat to public health of antibiotic resistance and prudent antibiotic use. The number of patients infected by resistant bacteria is increasing across the European Union and antibiotic resistance is a major threat to public health.
