We need to talk about CMV" – The CMV Report 2015

Out June 30th. Watch our trailer to the report below.

‪#‎BeCMVAware‬ ‪#‎TalkAboutCMV‬

In the first half of this year we have been working to marshal expert opinion in favour of increasing healthcare professionals' (HCP) awareness of CMV and the steps HCPs should take to ensure all pregnant women are aware of the risks.

As part of this, CMV Action will be publishing a report - 'We need to talk about CMV' - The CMV Report that explains more about the lack of awareness of congenital CMV infection and the burden it is placing on NHS services. The report will publish, for the first time, clear calls to action to reduce the number of babies born with CMV infection each year. 

It will be published and made available on the CMV Action website and will be launched to the media on 30th June to wrap up our awareness month activities.
