RSV and Me is a campaign spearheaded by the Immunisation Foundation of Australia (IFA) to shine a spotlight on RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), an unpredictable and potentially dangerous virus that puts thousands of infants in hospital each year and can cause serious long-term health issues.
As part of the RSV and Me campaign, the IFA is staging Australia’s first ever RSV Awareness Week.
From 4-10 June and to coincide with the onset of the usual RSV season, Australians from all walks of life will share their RSV stories as a cornerstone of the campaign.
Anyone – from individuals to health and community organisations – can get involved.
