Superheroes Against Superbugs (SaS) is an initiative launched in 2018 with the aim to build a community dedicated to tackle the growing threat of antibiotic resistant-infections in India by raising awareness and promoting public and policy action on the issue. SaS programmes aim to engage with the general public to raise public awareness and improve public understanding of this global threat to build a society of smart antibiotic users. Learn More about the problem of superbugs.
SaS is a novel and unique effort where young people are made creative partners in the fight against this century’s biggest health threat. We combine innovative science education and public engagement approaches to ensure that the project not only empowers young people with scientific knowledge but equips them with tools to use this knowledge to promote awareness and action in their sphere of influence.
