‘Super Soap and the power of prevention’: My drawing represents the immense power of prevention and prophylaxis, but in a more playful and colourful way; the person you can only see the back of is a superhero that exhibits the power and capabilities of medicine and antisepsis, it is shooting bubbles and soap from its hand and zapping it to the bacteria monsters, trying to extinguish their abilities of multiplication and hence fending off a septic environment in which disease could thrive.

‘Superbug and antibiotic resistance’: We can’t see bugs with our bare eyes so we need a microscope to see it. We use antibiotics to fight evil bugs, but because the bugs have grown stronger over the years the antibiotics can’t destroy the bugs who now become more powerful and mighty and called Superbug. So we should choose our antibiotics wisely the ones who can destroy the Superbugs.
