Our strategy

Our strategy

Every day we hear from individuals and families affected by or at risk of meningitis and septicaemia. By listening to their stories, and with nearly 30 years of experience, we have developed a good understanding of what they need to be protected, treated and supported. This strategy is written for them, from their perspective, so that no one is left behind.
