Ensure that the MS Society produces up-to-date, accurate and accessible information tailored to meet the needs of people affected by MS and MS professionals.
Provide support to all people affected by MS.
Raise standards of care for all people living with MS.
To increase awareness of the devastating impact of MS on people’s lives, influence decision-makers, and inform about the help, support and services the MS Society can provide.
