The European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP) boasts a strong track record of collaboration with EU institutions. 

Policymakers recognise EMSP as a worthy representative of the 700,000 people living with multiple sclerosis in Europe.

Support

  • In May 2015, MEP Adam Kosa – EU’s first deaf Member of Parliament – showed his resolve in helping improve the quality of life for people with MS:

  • EU Health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis also made his support known with a special message for EMSP’s 2015 Spring Conference:

“EMSP is doing a fine job in finding long-term solutions in areas that determine the quality of life of people with multiple sclerosis.”

European Patient Voice

As mentioned in EMSP’s recent policy report (page 26-27, 2015 Annual Report), “EMSP speaks with one voice on behalf of 700,000 people living with MS in Europe”.

We also continue to work closely with our partners representing other disease areas. Among them: the European Patient Forum (EPF), the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) and the European Brain Council (EBC).
