PROJECTS & INITIATIVES
Rethinking MS in Europe
The European Brain Council (EBC) is developing a new publication, RETHINKING MS in Europe: prioritising integrated services for people with multiple sclerosis, in collaboration with The Health Policy Partnership (HPP).
Building on the findings from the 2017 Value of Treatment report, EBC and HPP are developing a interdisciplinary consensus around practical and sustainable policy responses to MS at the European level. We are also producing deeper analysis with four country profiles examining the burden of MS in Denmark, Italy, Romania and Spain.
With this project, we aim to create greater visibility for the unmet needs experienced by people with MS, with a particular focus on: timely diagnosis and personalised treatment; interdisciplinary and coordinated care; and adaptable support in daily life including rehabilitation and social protection.
Launched in 2018, the project results were previewed at the European Parliament “MEP Interest Group Meeting on Brain, Mind and Pain” on the 6th of November 2019 and will be virtually launched on The International Day of Persons with Disabilities on the 3rd of December 2019.
