World Antibiotic Awareness Week:
12–18 November 2018

World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) aims to highlight the issue of antibiotic resistance, one of the most significant current threats to global health.

Currently, antibiotic resistant infections kill over 700,000 people worldwide each year, a figure expected to rise to 10 million by 2050 unless something is done today. 

The University has organised some events for WAAW to highlight the issue of antibiotic resistance, with all proceeds going to the Peninsula Medical Foundation to support pioneering research, pilot projects, clinical trials and PhD research students at the University of Plymouth's Medical School.

Your support for the future 

“The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry are fantastic, providing support for the health services of Devon and Cornwall now, and preparing to conquer new peaks of achievement through their exceptional research in the future. 

They really do deserve your support, through the Peninsula Medical Foundation, for their work; we all may benefit from it in years to come.” 

Colonel Edward Bolitho OBE, Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall
