Antibiotic Awareness Week

U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week Events

The U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week (USAAW) will be observed November 18-24, 2023. This annual one-week observance highlights the steps everyone can take to improve antibiotic prescribing and use.

Please join the Texas DSHS in the fight against antibiotic resistance by becoming more aware of actions to improve antibiotic prescribing and use. 

Simple actions such as posting the CDC's Be Antibiotics Aware educational materials throughout your facilities or place of work will improve awareness about the importance of appropriate antibiotic use to effectively treat infections, protect patients, and combat antibiotic resistance. 

Sign-up for the DSHS and the CDC e-mail listservs for news and updates on antibiotic resistance and antibiotic use!
