Participants are invited to submit their message of support by uploading a picture, video or audio file at www.roadmap2030.co.uk. This “gallery of support” will then be shared during the Roadmap launch on September 28th.
Speaking about the Roadmap after its ratification at the November 2020 World Health Assembly, Professor Keith Klugman of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation said: “Meningitis has increasingly remained a burden especially on poor children as they lack access to life saving antibiotics and vaccines – the WHO Defeating Meningitis roadmap is an important tool to stimulate the development and deployment of new vaccines to prevent meningitis in both newborns and older infants.”
The launch of the Global Roadmap to Defeat Meningitis will take place online on Zoom, and is free for all to attend. Click here to find out more.
