If I'd Known Then What I Know Now

In one way or another everyone can finish the sentence "If I'd Known Then What I Know Now..." and for many if we could have that time over again we would have done things differently. This is the case for six individuals who have been directly affected by meningitis.

In this video "If I'd Known Then What I Know Now" people affected by meningitis tell you the importance of knowing what they didn't know - the signs and symptoms of meningitis, the urgency to treat it and the role of vaccines in prevention.
