On 27 May 2015, around the globe people celebrated World MS Day. Thank you to all of our supporters and the MS community around the world who celebrated with us and helped us spread a positive message.
What MS-UK did to celebrate
We launched a new film, ‘We’re Here’. The film aims to tell people all about MS-UK and the services we offer, so that people living with multiple sclerosis know that we’re here.
Why launch a new film on this day?
World MS Day brings the global MS community together to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with and for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
There are 2.3 million people with MS worldwide, although it is likely that many hundreds of thousands more remain undiagnosed. We believe that living with MS shouldn’t be a barrier to having a happy life, and our professional services are here to support people to have choice, control and independence. That’s why we launched our film on World MS Day, with accessible versions, to celebrate and join in with the MS community across the world.
Together we’re #strongerthanMS
This year’s theme was Access
Equality of access doesn’t just mean physical access to buildings, but access to the same tools, services and facilities that people who don’t have MS enjoy.
The campaign theme for 2015, developed by staff at the MS International Federation, was access: access to diagnosis, treatment and support; access to buildings, travel and leisure facilities; and access to education, training and employment.
