World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) is a global campaign that is held annually to improve awareness and understanding of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and encourage best practices among the public.
The theme of WAAW 2022 is “Preventing antimicrobial resistance together”. AMR is a threat to humans, animals, plants, and the environment. It affects us all. That is why this year’s theme calls for cross-sectoral collaboration to preserve the efficacy of these important products.
More information about the WAAW can be found in the campaign guide .
The FFPW USB is part of an H2020 project NeoGiANT that aims to develop a new set of treatment products that will reduce the use of antibiotics in farmed animals and substitute synthetic preservatives. The new products will be developed based on an extract of natural origin called e-Vitis. The target products will control many major infectious diseases in animal production, both in livestock and aquaculture.
