About Us

We are committed to providing awareness, education, support, and research regarding meningococcal disease.

Meningococcal Australia was founded by a group of people deeply passionate about preventing the terrible impact of meningococcal disease on families. Many of our members have been personally touched by this tragic disease, losing loved ones or witnessing the severe complications that can arise from it. Their stories fuel our dedication to ensure that others do not have to endure similar heartache.

Our commitment has grown into a community-driven effort to bring awareness, support, and education to families, healthcare providers, and institutions across Australia. We believe that awareness saves lives, and we strive every day to make that belief a reality.

Our Mission

Meningococcal disease is a grave and often misunderstood illness. Early diagnosis and treatment can make a significant difference in both recovery and survival. Our mission at Meningococcal Australia is to educate, engage, and empower the community to recognise the symptoms and act quickly to prevent catastrophic outcomes.
