Committed to Preventing Meningitis
At the Confederation of Meningitis Organisations (CoMO) we are dedicated to preventing meningitis globally by ensuring families worldwide have access to early diagnosis, preventative measures and quick treatment.
It is our goal to prevent meningitis worldwide because we can and we should.
I was affected by meningococcal meningitis about 10 years ago, when I lost my legs and fingers because of the disease. At the time, I thought that I had lost everything, including my dreams.
World Meningitis Day
24th April 2020
World Meningitis Day 2020 highlighted why we need to #DefeatMeningitis and the steps we can all take to make it reality.
Meningitis and septicaemia are medical emergencies. Prevention and early recognition are key.
Meningitis can affect anyone at any time and can kill in hours.
We can all do our part to help #DefeatMeningitis.
