Each year there are about 2,000 cases of bacterial meningitis in the UK
Viral Meningitis Week runs between 6th and 12th of May 2019. It seeks to raise awareness about the true impact of the disease and the long-term problems it can bring.
It’s an international day highlighting the bravery of meningitis survivors and those whose lives have been changed forever through losing someone to the disease.
There are many fundraisers taking place to help raise awareness about Meningitis, fund research and provide support.
