Today is World MS Day!
World MS is officially marked on 30 May. It brings the global MS community together to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with everyone affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). World MS Day activities take place throughout the month of May and in early June. The campaign offers flexibility for individuals and organisations to achieve a variety of goals.
The theme for World MS Day 2020-2022 is connections and the campaign will be called MS Connections. The campaign is all about building community connection, self-connection and connections to quality care. The campaign tagline is ‘I Connect, We Connect’ and the campaign hashtag is #MSConnections.
This campaign, developed in collaboration with members of the global MSIF movement, will challenge social barriers that leave people affected by MS feeling lonely and socially isolated. It is an opportunity to advocate for better services, celebrate support networks and champion self-care.
MS Connections is flexible for individuals and organisations to achieve a variety of goals, including:
- Challenging social barriers and stigma that can leave people affected by MS feeling lonely and isolated
- Building communities that support and nurture people affected by MS
- Promoting self-care and healthy living with MS
- Lobbying decision makers for better services and effective treatment for people with MS.
