Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain. The inflammation is caused either by an infection invading the brain or through the immune system attacking the brain in error.
To live in a world where Encephalitis is as rare as it possibly can be given its eradication is unlikely, and that those affected and their families, have access to early diagnosis, excellent management of their condition, timely access to rehabilitation and other forms of social support.
Imagine a world where encephalitis is as rare as it can be and that people affected get the support they need to rebuild their shattered lives. Together we can increase global awareness of this devastating condition, save lives and build better futures.
We improve the quality of life of all people affected directly and indirectly by encephalitis by:
Supporting adults and children affected by encephalitis, their families and carers by providing advice and evidence-based information and working at a national and international level to improve services.
Raising awareness about the condition and its subsequent problems among relevant professionals, statutory agencies and the general public.
Conducting research and working in partnership with other researchers and their establishments.
