Social media in 2017

There are a number of ways for you to join the EAAD social media movement in 2017:


We are asking e.g. doctors, nurses, hospital managers, pharmacists, farmers, veterinarians, policymakers, professional and patient organisations, governmental institutions, and the general public to share a message via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, explaining what they are doing to ensure that these medicines remain effective. Everyone is responsible to keep antibiotics working!

If you wish to support the campaign, share messages, pictures or videos during the week 13—19 November 2017, using the hashtag #KeepAntibioticsWorking. Tell the world what you do, in your professional or personal life, at individual or collective level, to use antibiotics responsibly and keep them working!

Live tweeting event:

On 15 November from 09:00 to 13:00 we will be tweeting live from our EU-level event in Brussels. You can watch the live stream on our YouTube channel or on our Facebook page. We will be answering to questions using the hashtag #EAAD.

24-hour Global Twitter chat:

Following the success from previous years, ECDC is coordinating once more a Global Twitter chat, hosted jointly by participating organisations from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States, Japan, WHO Headquarters and its regional offices, the European Commission, the European Medicines Agency and the European Food Safety Authority. It will take place on 16 November and you can join the conversation by using the hashtags #AntibioticResistance and #EAAD.
