Welcome to Encephalitis Global

Encephalitis means inflammation of the brain. It is a rare disorder which in itself presents a challenge for those who have the misfortune to come across the illness. Very few people will have any previous knowledge of the forms it takes and of its consequences. Most often the illness is short lived but its consequences can be lifelong.  

Encephalitis Global is a U.S.A. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2005 as an alliance connecting encephalitis survivors and caregivers around the world.

Encephalitis Global strives to raise awareness, aiming to promote swift diagnosis, to alleviate unnecessary suffering and to prevent untimely death.

Encephalitis Global has welcomed more than 7,000 members from more than 90 countries to their Inspire Discussion Forum.  This Forum is the largest in the world which does focus on the topic of encephalitis, helping people share information and support on a daily basis. 

Encephalitis Global is proud to host an annual FACES Encephalitis Conference.   (FACES = Friends And Caregivers, Encephalitis Survivors).  
Our 14th annual FACES Conference was held in Seattle, WA in May 2018.
