RSV awareness campaign 2020

Awarenessweek 2020: Follow your instincts!

Each year, at the start of the RSV season (October-November) we are actively campaigning for more awareness about RSV by organizing an awareness week. This year, the awareness week will start on November 9th, and will be themed ‘Follow your instincts!’. We want to emphasize the importance of trusting your instincts as a parent when you feel something is really wrong with your child.

From November 9th until November 13th, we will share videos, interviews, parents’ and professionals’ experiences and many more about RSV on our Social Media channels. Our campaign covers the different stages parents go through when caring for a child with RSV: from recognition and diagnosis, to hospitalization and the possible sequelae after discharge.

RSV awareness campaign 2019

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.
