The Encephalitis Society

THE ILLNESS
Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain. The inflammation is caused either by an infection invading the brain (infectious); or through the immune system attacking the brain in error (post-infectious or autoimmune Encephalitis).

OUR VISION
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.

OUR AIM
To improve the quality of life of all people affected (directly and indirectly) by Encephalitis by:

OUR OBJECTIVES
· To support adults and children affected by Encephalitis, their families and carers by providing advice and peer-reviewed, evidence-based information.
· To raise awareness about the condition and its consequences among relevant professionals, statutory agencies and the general public.
· To conduct research and work in partnership with other researchers and their establishments.
