Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic
demyelinating neuroinflammatory disease of the central nervous system of
unknown etiology. Clinical disease usually starts with recurrent and reversible
neurological deficits in early adulthood and transforms into a disease course
with continuous and progressive neurological decline 20 years later.
World MS Day (WMSD) is the only global awareness
raising campaign for MS. Every year, the MS movement comes together to provide
the public with information about MS and how it affects the lives of more than
two million people around the world.
