MS Research Australia is the only national organisation dedicated to funding and coordinating MS research in Australia as part of the worldwide effort to solve MS. Its goal is to accelerate research into the cause, better treatments and prevention, with the aim of ultimately finding a cure for MS.
MS affects more young Australians than any other neurological condition.
It is a chronic and often disabling disease than randomly attacks and scars the protective insulation (myelin) that surrounds nerve fibres in the brain and spinal cord.
Up to 23,000 Australians have MS, with 1,000 newly diagnosed each year.
MS affects three times more women than men, often diagnosed in their 20s and 30s.
The community cost of MS amounts to A$2 billion per annum. With your support we can achieve freedom from MS.
