About the resource

In 2005, we published a set of principles – a kind of “gold standard” –  setting out what any person with MS should expect in order for them to have a good quality of life. In 2016, we reviewed the principles and carried out an extensive consultation with people from over 30 countries, learning more about what influences quality of life for people with MS, their caregivers, family members and friends closest to them. From this consultation, we have produced a refreshed set of principles identifying the main areas in which every bit of progress can make a real difference to individuals.
