world meningitis day
As well as showing us the devastating impact meningitis can have, these stories are also telling us something else. That many forms of meningitis can be prevented through vaccination. And that, for the types of meningitis for which vaccination is not yet available, it is possible to get life-saving treatment if you know the symptoms and act quickly. We should listen to them.
On World Meningitis Day (24 April 2015), international charity Meningitis Research Foundation has launched an online exhibition highlighting the work of their health intervention project in Malawi - Focus on Action Meningitis.
