|Event Date / Time:|
World MS Day is officially marked on 30th May every year, though events and campaigns take place throughout the month of May.
It brings the global MS community together to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with and for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common neurological disorders and causes of disability in young adults. There are 2.3 million people with MS worldwide. It is likely that hundreds of thousands more remain undiagnosed and many lives are affected indirectly, through caring for someone with MS.
Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 25 and 31, with around twice as many women diagnosed than men.
The cause of MS is not yet known and as yet there is no cure, though there are treatments available that can help some forms of MS and many things you can do to improve the symptoms.
