India MS Map
On #NationalStatisticsDay, MSSI launched the #IndiaMSMap !
When policies for MS are made – are you counted?
Do you benefit from them?
Do you get to know the latest information to treat MS?
With no comprehensive national data on MS, many get left behind in accessing schemes or resources designed for them. Therefore, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of India has launched this initiative. The India MS Map aims to crowd-source mapping of the prevalence of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in India.
Our endeavour is to ensure that no one gets left behind!

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of India has launched the #NumbersMatter Campaign to bring attention to the fact data is important. Absence of data causes barriers in access to affordable treatment, policy formulation and research for Multiple Sclerosis, Therefore, there is an immediate need for a mechanism to collect comprehensive data on Multiple Sclerosis at the country level.
World MS Day 2021
A New Guide for MS Caregivers!
The value of the caregiver movement in the context of conditions like MS can hardly be overemphasized. As India is in the grip of the second deadly wave of COVID-19, it has become imperative to mention that the caregiver’s challenges have increased manifold cutting across the mental and physical boundaries. This year, under the World MS Day global theme – Connections, we decided to turn the spotlight on MS family caregivers and provide a relevant resource in the form of a guide that will help them to prepare, manage and cope with caregiving duties – Guide for MS Caregivers.
We at MSSI salute all the caregivers for their tireless service and send wishes for your well-being and resilience. We hope you enjoy reading this guide and it will make a difference to you and improve the quality of your life.
The Guide was launched on 30th May 2021 on the occasion of World MS Day. We were joined by Dr Nimesh G Desai, Director of Institute of Human Behavior and Allied Sciences and Ms Bhavna Issar Founder caregiver from Saathi for the launch. See full event video below:
