18 November 2018

​The Ministry of Health (MOH) has participated in the antibiotic awareness campaign launched by the National Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) at shopping malls across the Kingdom's regions, in parallel with the World Antibiotic Awareness Week. The campaign targeted all community members and included awareness messages that underlined the importance of using antibiotics only as prescribed by your doctor, for the duration specified by him/her, and not sharing them with others. Also, the campaign focused on the importance of the optimum use of antibiotics in hospitals through field visits to hospitals to choose the proper antibiotic, dosage and duration depending on the patient's condition, with the aim of achieving a progress in the patient’s health condition and preventing the occurrence of antibiotic resistance.​

It is worth mentioning that CDC seeks to reduce communicable and non- communicable diseases, and to monitor, follow-up and prevent their spread. It also seeks to promote health and conduct specialized researches and studies in this field.
