Abstract:

Invasive infection with Neisseria meningitidis occurs in endemic and epidemic forms. In Australia epidemic disease has not occurred for many years; endemic disease is at low levels of incidence and cases are generally unrelated to each other. Despite this invasive meningococcal disease is of public health importance, is frequently a cause of public alarm and receives a high level of media attention. Responding to cases places heavy demands on clinical and public health disease control services. The aims of the Guidelines for the early clinical and public health management of Meningococcal Disease in Australia are: to assist primary care practitioners with the emergency management of cases of suspected invasive meningococcal disease; and to assist public health practitioners with the prevention of further cases after a case of invasive meningococcal disease has been reported.
