Raise Awareness

As a rare disease, CJD can be extremely isolating for those affected and their families. As well as supporting people to connect with others who have a common experience, we understand the importance of raising awareness. Head to our ‘news’ section to find awareness-raising stories and ideas that others have used.

International CJD Awareness Day

The 12th of November is International CJD Awareness Day. On this day every year, we come together with our friends and colleagues across the world to raise awareness of CJD and prion diseases. Starting in 2022, we will be publishing a video that can be shared to mark the day each year. If you would like your loved one’s photo to be added to the video for the next International CJD Awareness Day, please send it to us at [email protected]
