Meningitis - A Global Issue

We know that meningitis has the power to cause death or disability in hours! In this powerful video, representatives from six of our member organisations share their personal meningitis experiences.

Families around the world need to be aware of meningitis and need to know that some of the most serious types can be prevented through vaccination.

If I'd Known Then What I Know Now

In one way or another everyone can finish the sentence ‘If I’d Known Then What I Know Now...’ and for many if we could have that time over again we would have done things differently.

Survivors, parents and a family doctor share their own experiences of meningitis and what they would do differently if they had their time over again.

Knowing what they didn’t could help save a life. Watch this video to make sure you know the signs and symptoms of meningitis.
