World MS Day is officially marked on 30 May every year. In 2019, World MS Day was on Wednesday 30 May. The themes each year are chosen by MSIF (Multiple Sclerosis International Federation) in collaboration with its member organisations including MS Australia.
Raising awareness of the invisible symptoms and unseen impact of MS.
World MS Day 2019 will take place on 30th May. The 2019 campaign will be called ‘My Invisible MS’ (#MyInvisibleMS) and the theme is Visibility.
My Invisible MS will raise awareness of the invisible symptoms of MS and the unseen impact of MS on quality of life.
The campaign will give a voice to everyone affected by MS to share their invisible MS symptoms and express what you want others to know and understand about MS, in order to challenge common misconceptions and help people understand how to provide the right support.
There are many ways to get involved in World MS Day and use and adapt the My Invisible MS campaign. You can take part in the campaign online and on social media, hold an event to bring people together for World MS Day, lobby your decision makers to make positive changes for people affected by MS…there are so many possibilities!
