Meningitis is a life-threatening and incapacitating condition that has been associated with significant amounts of fear, predominantly because of the high case fatality rate. Meningitis is one of the vaccine-preventable diseases, nevertheless, we significantly lack in our efforts directed toward the containment of the infection when compared with other diseases for which vaccines are available. Acknowledging the magnitude of the disease, the ability of the infection to result in a fatal outcome, and the availability of potent and effective vaccines, the World Health Organization (WHO) has formulated a road map to contain meningitis infection. To conclude, meningitis is a global public health concern and has been associated with a wide range of detrimental sequels. The need of the hour is that we join our hands together and work in collaboration with the community toward the successful elimination of meningitis.
