This is the current survey question and results, so far....
How much did you know about meningitis before it touched you/your family?
- 82% of you had heard about meningitis but didn't know much
- 18% didn't know anything at all
At the Meningitis Trust we are very active trying to get meningitis signs and symptoms information distributed to key places: doctors, hospitals, schools and universities. We're also working hard at making information easily available online and now through mobile phones, like our iPhone app. Of course, we have provided a 24-hour helpline for many years as well.
What else can be done? Do you have any cost effective ideas (eg, no TV ads!) for spreading information? How do we make the meningitis message stand out? How do you think we could help you, help us?
All ideas welcome,
