The Hidden Cost of CMV

     

We are very excited to launch our latest awareness project – The Hidden Cost of CMV.

We all know that CMV costs government and families a fortune. But this isn’t widely recognised. So over the next 9 months CMV Action will be working with the York Health Economics Consortium to estimate the true cost of congenital CMV in the UK – on health, social care, education and wasted opportunity. We will then use this evidence to campaign for more education and research to .

This project will be entirely funded by our wonderful community fundraisers. So thank you for all the sponsored events, cake sales and donations. It's not too late to contribute – register your fundraising event now or text CMVA14 £5 to 70070.
