MRF is a national registered charity established in 1989. From small beginnings, the Foundation has grown into an international charity at the forefront of the fight against death and disability caused by meningitis and septicaemia. Since the charity's inception, thousands of people have become members of the Foundation, working together to help us achieve our vision of a world free from meningitis and septicaemia. MRF has funded scientific research in Malawi over the past decade, including antibiotic trials, steroid trials and studies to investigate the very severe outcome of meningitis in Malawi. Using this information, our current activities involve helping primary health clinics to implement triage using mobile phone technology, and undertaking community awareness to improve the outcome of bacterial meningitis in children in Malawi.
