Matthias is a five year old boy, already on treatment, who has been brought into hospital as an emergency with Meningitis. This film follows his progress over the next year. These films follow children over time, recording clinic visits or admissions to hospital, stopping to ask questions whenever treatment decisions need to be made. Suggested answers are contained in accompanying notes, which can be downloaded. Editable versions for adapting to different settings can be obtained from info@picturinghealth.org
