RSV awareness campaign
RSV is very common, and the disease burden on babies is considerable. Yet, only few people seem to be aware of this. We want to change this, and make sure that everyone in Europe has at least heard about RSV.
Each year, at the start of the RSV season (October-November) we are actively campaigning for more awareness. In 2020, we will launch the RSV awareness week on November 9th.
The key message of our campaign is to stress that RSV is a significant health concern for babies. What could be mistaken for ‘just’ a cold may cause serious respiratory infections and even become life-threatening.
