Drugs and Bugs

Explains big issues to small readers

“Drugs and Bugs” - a little book about medicines

Why do people get sick? What’s a virus? Who invents medicine, and what do they put in it? Drugs and Bugs – A little book about medicine is a children’s book that sets out to answer those questions in a fun and engaging way, without skipping any of the important facts about medicine, diseases and the human body.

The sooner children can learn about pharmacovigilance, the more likely our goal of safer use of medicines can be achieved. We believe that teaching kids about the benefits and dangers of medicines can have a positive impact on their communities, empowering them with the knowledge to make more well informed decisions regarding medicines.

We sponsored the reprint of Drugs and Bugs, as we believe that enhancing children’s understanding of medicine and health can only have a positive impact. The book is now available in Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. For more information about the book, contact info@who-umc.org.
