World Encephalitis Day 2023

World Encephalitis Day is a globally recognized awareness event held on February 22nd to educate people about encephalitis which is a rare but serious inflammation of the brain.

The day seeks to promote early detection, treatment, and support for those impacted by this condition, which can be caused by viruses, bacteria, and autoimmune disorders.

Symptoms of encephalitis include fever, headache, confusion, seizures, and in severe cases, coma. While some individuals may recover fully, others may suffer long-term neurological problems or even death.

By participating in World Encephalitis Day, individuals, healthcare professionals, and organizations can unite to learn more about this condition and support those affected by it. Through increased awareness, research, and advocacy, we can work towards improving outcomes for individuals impacted by encephalitis.
