World MS Day 2021

Events running up to the occasion of World MS Day being held on 30 May 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:
