World Encephalitis Day is the global awareness day for people who have been directly or indirectly affected by encephalitis.
Founded by The Encephalitis Society in 2014, it is held on February 22 each year and has reached over 200 million people through media features, events and social media.
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.
