Are we Counted?
Covid-19 has shown us how inequalities in access can stop us from living our lives to the fullest. Difficulty in access to affordable healthcare or treatment gets accentuated when one is living with Multiple Sclerosis or MS – a rare progressive disease of the nervous system – during a pandemic.
People living with MS are at the risk of being overlooked as there is no comprehensive data on them in India. They are not counted and therefore are MISSING – missing from health policy, insurance or research.
