The e-Bug project is an educational resource that will be available in schools across Europe.

The aim of the project will be to teach children, from an early age, the benefits of antibiotics, alongside information on prudent use and how inappropriate use can cause antibiotic resistance.

The project has been launched today to coincide with the first European Antibiotic Awareness Day.
