Each November, the World Health Organization (WHO) promotes World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) with the aim to increase global awareness of antibiotic resistance (AMR) and to encourage best practices among the general public, health care workers, and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance.

This November, CRCD organized an Antibiotics Awareness Talk and a poster competition as a part of this celebration. A number of posters were designed by our medical students and 3 posters were awarded 1st to 3rd prize.

Lastly, organizing chairperson Dr Lin Phyo Phyo San thanked the speakers (Prof Jenny, Prof Ng TH), the Judges (Prof Jenny, Prof Wong, Dr Yan and Dr Zay), as well as Prof Ngeow, Dr Shwe Sin, Dr Wong, Mdm Sue and team who provided advice  and support towards the success of the Antibiotic Awareness Week 2019 (Talk and Posters competition).
