 “Our experience in the NDIS trial sites suggests that only 30 percent of people living with multiple sclerosis will, at any one time, receive an individualised support package. We are looking forward to the positive impact MS Advisor will have on the remaining 70 percent who will still rely on MS services to maintain their quality of life”.

2,367 people participated in 117 MS Education programs, providing them with critical information so that they can make informed choices about their health.
