The Hidden Cost of CMV

     

We are very excited to launch our latest awareness project – The Hidden Cost of CMV.

We all know that CMV costs government and families a fortune. But this isn’t widely recognised. So over the next 9 months CMV Action will be working with the York Health Economics Consortium to estimate the true cost of congenital CMV in the UK – on health, social care, education and wasted opportunity.
