The Philippines, as one of the forefront WHO member states actively fighting against AMR, observes the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) every November of each year. The local celebration is termed as Philippine Antimicrobial Awareness Week (PAAW) and this has been observed since 2015.
In relation to this, the Department of Health issued a Department Circular to align and provide guidance in the nationwide campaign to raise AMR awareness during the celebration of the PAAW. All relevant stakeholders are encouraged to show their support through joining various advocacy activities prepared for the observance of the upcoming PAAW 2021 celebration.
