World Meningitis Day, 24 April

24 April, 2019

Dear colleagues

Today is World Meningitis Day.

Meningitis Research Foundation is highlighting our work on the Roadmap to Defeat Meningitis and launching our data hub which will help to monitor progress.

If you are on twitter and able to share our messages, we would really value your support.



Meningitis has significant links with many other diseases: bacteria that cause pneumonia can also cause meningitis; TB can lead to meningitis; cryptococcal (fungal) meningitis is a significant cause of AIDS deaths; and there is substantial misdiagnosis of meningitis as malaria).

If you would like any further information, please let me know.

Best wishes,


Rob Dawson
