Meet MS21's members

MS in the 21st Century (MS21) started in 2011 as a group of healthcare professionals with the aim to standardize multiple sclerosis (MS) care worldwide.

The importance of the patient voice was clear and, in 2016, people living with MS (PwMS) were invited to join the group.

The guiding principles adopted by MS21 are to:

  • Improve communication between healthcare professionals and PwMS; and
    • Develop practical educational resources based on real-world needs and data to support and drive this change.
    • Conduct real-world evidence, clinical research and insights to further understand the unmet needs in MS care

Please see below for more information about MS21’s members.
