About us

MS Brain Health is calling for a radical change in the management of multiple sclerosis because time matters at every stage of the disease.

The MS Brain Health initiative has emerged from an evidence-based international consensus report, Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis, which recommends a strategy to maximize lifelong ‘brain health’.
