Communication/Awareness raising Working Group


This working group brings together 6 networks involved in training, awareness raising and communication activities around antibiotic resistance and/or the proper use of antibiotics:


  • Anne-Gaëlle Venier (Mission MATIS)
  • Florence Lieutier Colas (Cpias Grand-Est & AntibioEst CRAtb Grand Est)


Their audiences are different and complementary: junior and senior prescribers, pharmacists, and other health professionals (human health, animal health), water managers, general public, etc.

They already use social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Youtube and their websites.

By working together, these networks will be able to increase awareness of the general public on this issue, inform their own network, but also pharmaceutical companies, decision-makers, institutions, patient associations to change practices.


  • Promote the sharing of information, knowledge and skills
  • Strengthen the skills of network members
  • Make people aware of antimicrobial resistance and One Health.

What progress?

Activities in 2022
