About World MS Day
World MS Day is officially marked on the last Wednesday of May every year. Awareness events and campaigns take place throughout the month of May across the globe. These awareness events and campaigns bring the global MS community together to share their stories, personal experiences, with other patients and the public in general and to raise awareness and campaign with and for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
The very first World MS Day was initiated by the members of the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) in 2009. Over the years, hundreds and thousands of people around the world have joined hands to show their support in the fight against MS. Every year, the World MS Day campaign focuses on a different theme.
The theme for 2017 will be “Life with MS,” and the announced date is Wednesday 31 May, 2017.
