World Encephalitis Day
World Encephalitis Day on February 22 is a global awareness day where individuals and families affected by encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) come together to shine a light on the condition.
The sixth annual World Encephalitis Day is led by the Encephalitis Society and will celebrate and honour the millions of people affected by encephalitis across the world.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Seventy eight per cent of people across the world do not know what encephalitis is.*
This is something we MUST change to achieve our vision of a world which is aware of encephalitis, its consequences and the support available.
