The Meningitis Environmental Risk Information Technologies (MERIT) project is a joint effort of the World Health Organization (WHO)and collaborators to utilize more effectively existing knowledge of the epidemiology of meningococcal meningitis to improve current control strategies; to improve the understanding of the relationship between bacterial meningitis and environmental parameters; to use this understanding to provide more timely warnings of the onset of meningitis epidemics; and to use this knowledge to improve the efficacy of meningitis prevention and control strategies. 

The first meeting of the MERIT Project was held in Geneva in September 2007.
