WORLD MENINGITIS DAY 2017

ALL YEARS OF WMD

World Meningitis Day 2017
 

The theme for 2017, chosen by CoMO members, was ’24 Hours – Trust your instincts’

 

The key messages of the 2017 campaign were:

  1. Meningitis is a potentially deadly disease that affects more than 1 million people worldwide each year

  2. Meningitis can affect people of all ages and cause death within 24 hours

  3. Some forms of meningitis are vaccine preventable

  4. Don’t wait until it threatens the life of someone you care about, learn what to look for and trust your instincts
