World AMR Awareness Week

World AMR Awareness Week (WAAW), formerly Antimicrobial Awareness Week (AAW) is celebrated from 18 - 24 November each year. 

From 2023, the World Health Organization has rebranded Antimicrobial Awareness Week to World AMR Awareness Week (WAAW).

The theme for 2023 remains Preventing Antimicrobial Resistance Together.

The Commission supports WAAW in Australia by providing a range of resources and coordinating initiatives to support the effective use of antimicrobials in preventing and containing antimicrobial resistance and local activities across the week.
