Antibiotic resistance

Minister Schippers: "When antibiotics lose their effect, millions of us will be in danger.”

Most people don’t know when antibiotics are effective, and when they are not. As a result, antibiotics are frequently used at times when they don’t contribute to getting better.

This enables bacteria to become resistant. We wanted to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance and try to prevent the incorrect use of antibiotics.

With the slogan ‘Use antibiotics with great care,’, we positioned the campaign as something in which everybody plays a part. It is important we all do our bit.
