Help us prove that CMV costs the NHS a fortune!


CMV Action are working with the University of York to estimate how much congenital CMV and the long-term impairments it can cause cost the UK each year. This will help to raise awareness of just how serious the economic impact of congenital CMV is. We will use the report to encourage more research into prevention and follow-up studies and to promote policy changes. 

Please donate now to help fund this vital research and report. or text CMVA14 £10 to 70070 to donate now.  We do not get any government funding and every little helps.

We want to find out more about the financial impact of supporting a child who is born with CMV and develops complications. We know that the impact of CMV varies from child to child, and the support they require will vary too. We also know that costs don't just mean the cost of treatment itself.
