The Meningitis Foundation of America (MFA) is a voluntary, non-profit organization dedicated to providing information and support to individuals who have had personal experience with meningitis, their families, healthcare professionals, and the general public. Established in 1997, the foundation is committed to alerting the public and the medical communities about the initial symptoms of meningitis and the need for early diagnosis and immediate treatment. Meningitis is an inflammation of the protective membranes surrounding the brain and/or spinal cord (meninges). In most cases, meningitis results from viral or bacterial infection. Viral meningitis is more common than bacterial meningitis and may often be mild. Bacterial meningitis may be extremely serious, rapidly causing potentially life-threatening complications. The foundation offers a 24-hour hotline, provides networking services for affected individuals and families, and engages in advocacy.
