World Encephalitis Day on Tuesday, the 22nd of February, is the global awareness day for people who have been directly or indirectly affected by encephalitis.
Founded by The Encephalitis Society in 2014, it has reached over 236 million people through media features, events and social media over the years.
It is our hope that it will play a leading role in our mission to increase global awareness of encephalitis and therefore saving lives and building better futures.
