The National Meningitis Association (NMA) is a non-profit organization founded by five parents whose children have died or suffered long-term disabilities from meningococcal meningitis. NMA’s mission is to educate families, medical professionals, and others about bacterial meningitis and prevention approaches to the disease. Meningococcal meningitis is caused by bacteria that invade the lining of the brain and spinal cord (meninges). Nearly one-third of the 2,000 to 3,000 cases that occur annually in the United States result in death or severe disability, such as limb amputations and organ damage. NMA offers information and referrals to those who contact them.
