Leveling the MS Field in Europe

There are so many differences in needs, demands, opportunities, and treatment options among countries in the European Union. The European MS Platform (EMSP) is working to eliminate barriers to improve MSers quality of living.

For example, MSers treated in Poland include 1%, while in Sweden, approximately 50% of MS patients are treated. And while Ireland has 16 neurologists for 7000 MSers, Iceland has
18 neurologists to treat only 330 MSers. Wow.

The EMSP's mission is to exchange and disseminate information relating to multiple sclerosis considering all issues relevant to people affected by MS.

Read the current projects and scheduled events. One event, scheduled in Prague in October, will be hosted by the MS International Federation and the Czech MS Society with the European MS Platform. This is the first time an event of this type will be held in the Czech Republic, giving Czech MSers and medical professionals the opportunity to learn about current and future developments in living with MS.
