About the Curing Coma Campaign

Coma is a uniquely modern clinical challenge – a direct consequence of our incredible ability to maintain life support and fight death. Coma is a condition that has always fascinated and will increasingly challenge humanity.

In 2019 the Neurocritical Care Society launched the Curing Coma Campaign as its signature clinical, scientific, and public health effort. The Curing Coma Campaign is the first global public health initiative to tackle the unifying concept of coma as a treatable medical entity. The goal of the Curing Coma Campaign is to develop and implement coma treatment strategies that improve human lives.

Serious and driven, the message of the Curing Coma Campaign is that there is hope for victims with prolonged disorders of consciousness after brain injury. Whether you are a healthcare professional or scientist, a patient or patient advocate, or a representative of any organisation devoted to improving health or understanding, we thank you for your interest, involvement, advocacy and support.
