World MS Day 2020: Happy World MS Day 2020 Theme, Wishes, Logo, Poster, Clipart, Ribbon, Images:
World MS Day is to be celebrated on May 30th 2020.
The 2020-2022 World MS Day theme is ‘connections’. MS Connections is all about building community connection, self-connection and connections to quality care. We are challenging social barriers that leave people affected by MS feeling lonely and socially isolated. Together, we advocate for better services, celebrate support networks and champion self-care. Change the future, find your #MSConnections.
World MS Day is coordinated by the MS International Federation and its members
World MS Day is officially marked on 30 May each year. Events and campaigns take place throughout the month of May. It brings the global MS community together to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with and for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
The 2018 campaign will be called #bringinguscloser and the theme is research.
In 2009, the MS International Federation (MSIF) and its members initiated the first World MS Day. Together we have reached hundreds of thousands of people around the world, with a campaign focusing on a different theme each year.
MSIF provides a toolkit of free resources to help everyone to take part in World MS Day. Anyone can use these tools, or make their own, to create positive change in the lives of more than 2.3 million people around the world.
The Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) was established in 1967 as an international body linking the activities of National MS societies around the world. The Federation seeks to work in worldwide partnership with Member Societies and the international scientific community to eliminate multiple sclerosis and its consequences, and to speak out globally on behalf of those affected by multiple sclerosis.
MSIF works to achieve its goal through the following key priorities:
- International research
- Development of new and existing societies
- Exchange of information
Since its establishment in 1967, MSIF has grown to link the work of 43 member MS societies worldwide. MSIF is in touch with many other emerging societies, and aims to support all MS societies in their development. MSIF has a budget of around £1 million per year, with most funding coming from member societies and charitable foundations. Around a quarter of its income comes from the health care industry.
