Meningitis Awareness Week 2011

Meningitis Awareness Week (19-25th September) sees the launch of an online video to support the Meningitis Research Foundation's (MRF) Counting the Cost of Meningitis campaign and builds support for vaccination against meningitis and septicaemia.

The shocking lifelong costs of surviving meningitis and septicaemia have been examined by MRF, resulting in the launch of a campaign calling on the Government to pursue the widest and earliest implementation of vaccines to prevent the diseases.

Case studies of those affected by the diseases are available here.
