World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) will now be World AMR Awareness Week
The Quadripartite organizations – the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH) – are pleased to announce the rebranding of WAAW as World AMR Awareness Week.
Two global consultation meetings were convened by the Quadripartite to discuss this rebranding. There was broad agreement and support to this change from stakeholders across the globe and different sectors. “AMR” includes the term “resistance”, which better represents the challenge that we are facing. The acronym will remain “WAAW”, while all expansions of this acronym will now be re-branded as “World AMR Awareness Week.”
