About this event
World MS Day brings the global MS community together on May 30 to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with everyone affected by multiple sclerosis (MS).
First initiated by the MS International Federation (MSIF) and its members in 2009, World MS Day is a day to celebrate global solidarity and hope for the future.
The World MS Day 2022 theme is ‘Connections’. The four-year global theme (2020 – 2023) aims to build community connection, self-connection and connections to quality care.
MS Australia is contributing to this significant international exploration of relationships, connections and the impacts of social isolation for people living with MS.
In Australia, our World MS Day 2022 focus is on Employment and MS including its link to community connection. On May 30 we will launch the results of a major survey on this topic plus updated, practical guides for employers and employees.
The MS Connections campaign challenges social barriers that leave people affected by MS feeling lonely and socially isolated.
The campaign tagline is ‘I Connect, We Connect’ and the campaign hashtag is #MSConnections.
World MS Day is an opportunity to advocate for better services, celebrate support networks and champion self-care.
