Encephalitis. Global Issue. Human Solution.
One of the missions of the Encephalitis Society is to ensure that survivors and their families have all the resources, support and information they need to thrive after encephalitis.
That is why this year’s theme for World Encephalitis Day on Saturday, 22nd February, will focus on encephalitis experts.
We are proud to say that we work alongside global leaders in encephalitis research and treatment who are devoted to saving lives and improving our understanding of encephalitis.
In our 25-year history, we estimate that 3.75 million people globally have died as a direct result of their encephalitis diagnosis.
Our mission – and the mission of encephalitis experts around the world – is to see that figure halved over the next 25 years.
That is why we need your help this World Encephalitis Day.
Encephalitis is a global issue - but there is a human solution which could help to save lives.
That human solution is not only our encephalitis experts who benefit from research but also YOU – our supporters.
With your support we can raise awareness of encephalitis during World Encephalitis Day and help us continue to fund research so our encephalitis experts can continue their life-saving work.
What can you do?
Thank you for your support!
