World Meningitis Day 2020

Will you pledge your support to defeat meningitis?


Complete this sentence: "I support the plan to defeat meningitis because..."

It might be because you've experienced meningitis yourself, and don't want anyone else to. Maybe you want to protect your loved ones from this disease. Or maybe you think everyone should have the best possible protection, support and treatment for meningitis. Whatever your reason for wanting to defeat meningitis, we want to hear it.

For World Meningitis Day 2020 (24th April), Meningitis Research Foundation is working with the Confederation of Meningitis Organisations (CoMO) in calling for a world free from meningitis. We need your help to prove to governments all over the world that meningitis is a global problem, which demands a global solution.

When you pledge your support to defeat meningitis, your location will be anonymously included in our global tracking map.

Pledge your support today. Make your voice heard.
We call for positive change as a united voice against meningitis and septicaemia, and a dedicated champion for those it affects.
Since the charity was founded in 1989, we have awarded 161 research grants. The total value of our investment in vital scientific research is over £19.1 million (€24.7 million).
We take action that benefits people directly, including training health professionals and providing support and information services.
£160/€190/$214 decodes the genetic information in a sample of meningococcal bacteria. This information has helped us track new forms of meningitis and campaign to introduce new vaccines to protect people.
