Meningitis Environmental Risk Information Technologies (MERIT)

The Meningitis Environmental Risk Information Technologies (MERIT) initiative is a multi-disciplinary community of partners who conduct research to advance the use of climate-related information in strengthening public health strategies for the control of epidemic meningitis in Africa. By linking climate factors with meningitis incidence, MERIT streamlines efforts to develop new knowledge; it also strengthens processes to enable operational services and field activities focused on reducing the socio-economic and health burdens of meningitis in low-resource countries in Africa.
