International awards

In order to recognise the unique contribution people with MS and their families and caregivers offer to the global MS movement, we offer two special international awards:

James D Wolfensohn AwardJames D Wolfensohn

This is given every two years to a person with MS in recognition of their valuable contribution to the fight against MS. The award is named after former MSIF President, James D. Wolfensohn (pictured). Find out more.
