Awareness Raising

     

At CMV Action our mission is to limit the devastating impact of CMV for those currently affected and for future generations. We offer advice and support to anyone affected by congenital CMV and we work with medical professionals, support research and raise awareness of the virus.

Raising awareness is essential - we know how devastating this virus can be and how it is still an unknown among medical professionals and the public. We need your help in raising the profile of CMV which, in turn, will help us achieve the ultimate goal - Educate, Vaccinate, Eradicate.
