Introduction

Bacterial meningitis (*) kills more than 170,000 people each year. Although sporadic cases are detected in developed countries, the vast majority of deaths and suffering happen in Africa. Epidemics regularly hit countries in the area referred to as the African meningitis belt, which stretches across the continent from Senegal to Ethiopia. The total population at risk in the countries affected is around 300 million.

Through its Campaign for Access to Essential Medicines, MSF has been closely following the developments in the world of access to medicines, vaccines and diagnostics.
