Antimicrobial resistance is a current and acknowledged global problem. It is now being addressed by many countries as well as on a worldwide scale by the World Health Organisation, and has been described as ‘one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces now and in the coming decades’.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is inviting all primary schools in Gwynedd and Anglesey, to work with their Key Stage 2 pupils to create a poster titled “Beat the Bug” that will be used to promote the appropriate use of antibiotics across Gwynedd and Anglesey for 2018.   This poster should raise awareness of the effects that inappropriate use of antibiotics have on human health to the public and professionals (see the bilingual website http://www.e-bug.eu for more ideas).

The pupil whose poster is selected will be given an IPad 32g (gold) as a prize and also his/her school will win a prize of an Apple IPad 32G,(Silver) wifi only and both will be engraved “Winner of the BCUHB “Beat the bug” campaign 2018”.
