Group B Strep International
Promoting awareness and prevention of GBS disease in babies before birth through early infancy

As 2020 comes to a close, we want to thank all who have shown their support for GBS awareness and prevention. This year was filled with uncertainty and setbacks, but it has also highlighted the determination and resilience of our community to persevere and work to protect babies. Notably, we have been able to reach communities through parent fundraisers, host the hugely successful ICGBS 2020, and launch the WAVES Study!

We look forward to what we can accomplish in 2021!

Today is #GivingTuesday! We ask that you consider giving your time to help us identify the gaps in GBS care and communication.

If you've had a baby (with or without group B strep disease) conceived on or after January 1, 2003, we want to hear from you! Please take the survey for the WAVES Study (Ways to Avoid Various Elements of Susceptibility). 

We also need your help to promote the study! Please share the link with your contacts and on social media.  

Like to help another way? You can also donate to help us spread the word on the WAVES Study and reach people around the world!

Together, we can help wave goodbye to GBS disease!
