World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2021

A disease outbreak anywhere is a risk everywhere. If we use antibiotics when not needed, we may not have them when they are most needed. To create this awareness the Department of Biotechnology, SRMIST, Ramapuram has conducted a World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2021. A creative online video contest on SPREAD AWARENESS, STOP RESISTANCE for higher secondary school students and undergraduate students. The World Antimicrobial Awareness Week aims to increase awareness of global antimicrobial resistance and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers, and policymakers to avoid the further emergence and spread of drug-resistant infections. In this context, we found 50 active participants from various schools and institutions participated in the event. The winner of this competition was chosen by Dr.S.Suresh, Head of Biotechnology, convenor, and moderator of this event. The assessment was done based on the uniqueness of the content.
