Event Details

ME YOU and THE SUPERBUGS is a free public engagement event to raise awareness on how we can all stop the spread of antibiotic-resistant infections in our nation Nigeria. To save lives and future generations - In celebration of World Antibiotic Awareness Week.

At present, antibiotic resistance is a global problem. There are now infections that antibiotics no longer work for.

Many bacteria have developed resistance. These bacteria that develop resistance are sometimes referred to as “SUPERBUGS”.

What can you expect to see? 

  • How antibiotic resistance occurs
  • What you and I can do to stop the spread of resistant infections
  • Careers in science and research
  • Hands-on science workshop for the young ones
  • And More!!

The event will showcase the important and amazing world of the biosciences, getting everyone from children to professional biologists involved in fun and interesting science activities. There will be lots of easy-to-understand science and lots of fun for families, children, adults, from all walks of life. You do not have to know any science to attend. 

The World Health Organisation estimates that antibiotic-resistant infections already kill 700,000 people a year globally, this may mean that 10 million people die every year by 2050. 

We can change our behaviour as users of antibiotics and ensure that antibiotics are still available when we need them.

ME, YOU - Everyone can do something to help.

The Time To Act is Now!
