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.
It's great to see that there is now a plan to defeat this horrific disease, I look forward to watching us progress to a world free from meningitis!
"Loosing a child to meningitis, like I lost my beloved Mathias in the summer of 2019, is the most devastating thing that can happen to a parent. So my goal by starting the foundation Meningokockfonden in Sweden is to spread awareness to the public about the symptoms and the possibilities to get vaccinated so that other children will be saved in the future." Christine Bennborn, founder and chairman Meningokockfonden
After having meningococcal septicaemia at 16, I know first hand the severity of this disease. I fully support this worldwide objective. A world free from meningitis would be amazing.
My son died of Meningitis aged 19 years while away at University.
I contracted Meningococcal Meningitis at 19 & became a bilateral bk w a lot of scarring as well as the loss of 4 fingers. To say this came out of nowhere is an understatement. Its been 41yrs & I would love to spare others from this. I applaud ur efforts & everyone who's lives were affected by this illness.
I support Meningitis Awareness Week. We must do all we can to limit Meningitis. It can be a deadly illness.
