World Meningitis Day: 24th of April 2019
The theme for World Meningitis Day 2019 was Life After Meningitis. The campaign focused on the after effects of meningitis, whether that is bereavement after losing someone to meningitis or managing a wide range of consequences #AfterMeningitis.
The key messages of the 2019 campaign are:
Meningitis and septicaemia can strike in a matter of hours but the after effects can last a lifetime.
Vaccinations are key to meningitis prevention.
Meningitis can kill in 24 hours, so recognising the symptoms and acting fast is crucial.
Meningitis currently affects more than 2.8 million people each year globally.
