CoMO is an international member organisation. Our members benefit from being part of a global network that works together to reduce the incidence and impact of meningitis worldwide.
Membership of CoMO is free and open to patient groups, individuals and not-for-profit organisations with a focus on
meningitis, survivors and families.
We have three types of members:
Full Member, for groups and organisations with a specific focus on meningitis. If a non-profit organisation, legal registration is required to become a Full Member.
Associate Member, for groups and organisations with an interest in meningitis. This membership tier is also for organisations without legal registration.
Friends of CoMO, for individuals (such as healthcare professionals, people affected and advocates) who want to support our work.

Be invited to attend conferences and events to meet other members, share ideas, hear from international meningitis experts and develop best practice skills.
Be matched with one of our CoMO Buddies (an existing CoMO member that can help support your organisation).
The buddying program aims to support the sustainable development of new members while helping them contribute to the achievement of our shared vision, to prevent meningitis because we can and we should.
Having a buddy will:
Make sure new members make the most of being part of the CoMO family, understand the benefits and what is available.
Make sure that the needs of new members are understood and supported.
Facilitate sharing of knowledge, expertise and resources so that new members can learn from those who have already been through the journey.
