One of our main strategic aims is to support and encourage the development of MS organisations around the world. We believe that national MS organisations, with the contextual knowledge, cultural awareness and local language, are best placed to meet the needs of people with MS.

We maintain regular contact and offer practical support and guidance to small and developing MS organisations via email, online and printed information; international exchange and visits by our staff and trustees.

The MS International Federation’s current focus areas are China and Arabic-speaking countries. Through both country-specific and regional approaches, we provide training, advice and support as well as bringing regional and linguistic groups together to share best practice and strengthen organisational capacity through regular, targeted training opportunities.
