Self-advocacy is important for people with MS in a variety of ways. From educating yourself and others, empowering yourself to achieve your goals or advocating publicly to change legislation and policy, a lot can be achieved through advocacy.
This webinar provides information and guidance on how to be an effective self-advocate, including advocating for yourself through government channels and the medical system.
Health systems and political structures vary from country to country. Use this tool to get in contact with your nearest MS organisation to see how they advocate in your country.
