Join the many voices sharing their support now for defeating meningitis
On 28th September, the Global Roadmap to Defeat Meningitis will be launched by the World Health Organization (WHO). For the first time, countries will unite behind a global effort to defeat meningitis and provide meaningful aftercare to survivors and their families.
The launch provides an opportunity for your voice to be heard by global leaders at this once in a lifetime Roadmap launch. We need to show them how much people want to see meningitis defeated – the more voices we get the stronger the call to action.
Use the form to submit your message that celebrated the launch of the roadmap. This could be a photo, video, or even an audio file if you’d like. This will then be added to our gallery of support which will be shown at the Roadmap launch, for all to see, as proof of public support for the Roadmap. This will encourage global leaders to take action and help defeat meningitis.
Your voice deserves to be heard. Be part of history and show your support for the WHO Global Roadmap to Defeat Meningitis.
These pictures are of Jamie Schanbaum and Nick Springer both USA paralymic atheletes both survived Meningitis but at great loss of their limbs. This did not stop Jamie nor Nick from speaking Nationally & Globally to educate and spread awareness & knowledge for both Meningitis Vaccines ACWY and MenB. It is through great sadness that Nick Springer passed away this year from the toll that Meningitis took on his body but never on his will to live. We will miss Nick Springer
I add my voice to say "Defeat Meningitis". A disease that can affect any age; including new born babies, and can turn the life of a person into pains and trauma. All hands should be on decks, as W.H.O launches the "Roadmap to Defeat Meningitis by 2030" in some few hours from now.
This video shows the art of a meningitis survivor from Spain that overcame severe sequelae after contracting Meningitis. His sense of humor and great personality determine his life . Jaime is a national and outstanding example for all of us!

I am a Meningitis survivor and I create a fairy tale to show parents how to explain their kids not to be afraid of vaccines. My husband Stéphann created this icon , this logo that relates the drawing to the disease
Very good initiative for a global cause,hope this can bring a change in defeating the disease
