In 2022, we marked World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW). This global campaign is celebrated from 18 to 24 November each year to promote awareness and understanding of AMR and encourage best practices among the public, healthcare workers and policymakers who all play a critical role in reducing the further emergence and spread of this hidden pandemic
In November 2022, the IHH Singapore Pharmacy team came together to shine the spotlight on one of the greatest threats to human health today – AMR. The week-long event saw physical pop-up booths deployed across all our Singapore hospitals.
More than 300 doctors, staff and even members of the public dropped by to learn more about AMR through fun and engaging puzzle games, while being rewarded with healthy, delicious snacks.
IHH Singapore also participated in the WAAW inter-hospital webinar series, which saw medical experts from public and private hospitals share their expertise on AMR and appropriate antimicrobial-prescribing practices. The webinar series was hosted and organised by the National Centre for Infectious Diseases.
