Governments worldwide to include meningitis preventing vaccines in their National Immunisation Programmes.

Did you know? 

  • Meningitis can cause death and disability in a matter of hours
  • Every year more than 1.7 million people worldwide suffer meningitis
  • Bacterial meningitis, which is the most severe and common form, causes around 170,000 deaths globally every year
  • Even with prompt diagnosis and treatment, 10 per cent of people who contract meningitis will die and a further 20 per cent or more will suffer a long term disability
  • Those surviving meningitis can have their lives devastated as a result of long-term effects, such as deafness, brain damage and when septicaemia is involved loss of limbs. 
The good news is that each and every one of us can make a difference in reducing the number of people affected by this devastating disease. You can Join Hands in the fight against Meningitis by simply signing this petition! 

Signed,

Aimee Tolomei
