About Encephalitis International

The aim of the Encephalitis Society is to improve the quality of life of those affected by encephalitis by providing support and encouragement, promoting a high quality of services, supporting research, and raising general awareness of this disease and its subsequent problems. In general, “encephalitis” means inflammation of the brain, but the term often is used to refer specifically to inflammation caused by a virus and resulting in severe, possibly life-threatening disease.
