Meningitis: The battle to defeat the disease

2020 Research Outreach  
Meningitis and septicaemia are deadly diseases that strike without warning. Meningitis is the swelling of the meninges, which is the lining around the brain and spinal cord, caused mainly by bacteria entering the body. Septicaemia is blood poisoning caused by the same bacteria that can cause meningitis. Collectively, meningitis and neonatal sepsis are the second biggest infectious killers of children aged under five globally.
