World Meningitis Day 2020 is Friday 24 April.
World Meningitis Day 2020 highlights the importance of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and improving support for those dealing with the potentially devastating after effects of this deadly disease.
World Meningitis Day is led by the Confederation of Meningitis Organisations (COMO). Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) is a member of COMO, and each year MRF and the charity’s supporters focus on a different aspect of the disease and share the theme to raise awareness.
This year's theme for World Meningitis Day is Defeat Meningitis. We can all play a part in defeating meningitis. The campaign will focus on why we need to defeat meningitis and the steps we can all take to make it reality.
MRF is looking for stories to help us raise awareness in news and social media.
What does defeating meningitis mean to you? If you'd like to share your experience to help MRF raise awareness of how we can defeat meningitis please get in touch.
