Video: learn more about what you can do to use antibiotics safely
Get Smart About Antibiotics Week (Get Smart Week) is an annual observance intended to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance and the threat it presents to public health. This year, Get Smart Week is November 16-22, 2015. Antibiotic resistance is when bacteria stop responding to the drugs designed to kill them. We risk turning back the clock to a world where simple infections can kill people as they did a century ago. More than 2 million people in the United States get infections that are resistant to antibiotics every year and at least 23,000 people die as a result.
MRSA – Preventing Outbreaks in New Jersey’s Prisons was developed collaboratively by the NJ Department of Health and the NJ Department of Corrections.
