Since the charity started in the early 1980s, we have funded more than £12.7 million of vital research and continue to invest in studies to help beat meningitis.

Meningitis Now research

In recent decades there have been many important advances in the prevention and treatment of meningitis, and this has been accompanied by a decline in the number of cases, particularly in recent years.

Despite this, new cases of disease are still causing death and disability each year, and many others continue to live with the life-long impact. Our continued investment in research is vital.
