In 2012, MSIF launched a programme to update the Atlas of MS website, which currently contains epidemiological and resource accessibility data for 112 countries around the world.
The Atlas of MS has proven to be a valuable resource for scientific researchers, MS patient organisations and the general public. As part of the programme we have sent questionnaires to MS patient organisations and health professionals around the world, so that they can ensure that the Atlas of MS database contains the most up-to-date information available.
Progress is being made and we have now received completed questionnaires from 30 countries. However, we need information from many more countries to ensure that the Atlas of MS database remains a valuable resource for the global MS community.
If you have received the survey questionnaires please ensure that they are completed and returned to us by 31 January 2013. If you would like to take part in this survey but have not yet received the questionnaires, or if you are having difficulty completing and returning your questionnaires, please contact Paul Browne for more information.
