Luke and Lucy - Auntie Biotica

The Belgian Antibiotic Policy Coordination Committee (BAPCOC), under guidance of Herman Goossens and Samuel Coenen (UAntwerp), developed a comic on correct use of antibiotics as part of its most recent antibiotic awareness campaign.

Next to online and print versions in Dutch and French, an online version of this comic is now also available in English. Please enjoy reading the Luke and Lucy comic ‘Auntie Biotica’ at http://issuu.com/wpgbe/docs/auntie_biotica, and spread the news.
