Antibiotics - Handle with care

6 November 2017 -- Antibiotics are often used to treat infections but they aren’t always the answer. Everybody has a role to play to help reduce antibiotic resistance.


Antibiotics don't cure viruses like colds and flu


Only take antibiotics a health professional has prescribed to you


Never share antibiotics (not even with family)


Wash your hands to prevent infections (and avoid the need for antibiotics)
