About Meningococcal Australia
Meningococcal Australia was formed by people who are passionate about increasing community awareness of the signs and symptoms of meningococcal disease. Early diagnosis and treatment is critical to avoid terrible complications from the disease, and ensure the best chance of recovery and survival.
