MFA Mission Statement

* To educate the public and medical professionals about meningitis so that its early diagnosis and treatment will save lives

* To support the development of vaccines and other methods of preventing meningitis


In support of our mission, our team support sufferers of meningitis and their families - this might mean a phone call to lend a comforting ear to working with families to raise awareness about prevention and swift treatment of the various forms of Meningitis.

Also, we also educate both the public and medical professionals about meningitis. We attend many events and forums so that professionals are kept aware of the emerging prevention and treatment options available and families can be armed with good information to make informed decisions about their own health. We firmly believe that early diagnosis and treatment saves lives.

Would you recommend Meningitis Foundation of America?

I am a 40 year old female survivor of meningitis. I got meningitis at a week old in 1971. Not until recently, I have checked on things with meningitis. Wow…what an eye opening experience. I can’t imagine how my family held in there during my six months hospitalization and the many last rights given. I would like to support families and make this more of an awareness to all that may be or have been affected by meningitis and educate everyone about meningitis.

I've had meningitis and I didn't like it so I want to help out other people.
