Multiple Sclerosis Information Dividend
MS-ID project is about information on MS and the benefit to be reaped from it. At present in Europe there is very little data gathered about MS, its incidence, who is affected by it, who is taking what drugs as treatment, how MS impacts on the lives of people who are diagnosed, what it results in for their participation in the labour market, what additional supports does the State provide and need to provide for people with MS. In order to better understand the impact of MS, we have to know the effects it brings to society at large.

The MS Barometer 2011 results confirm the huge disparities existing between European countries in the management of Multiple Sclerosis and the quality of life of Persons with Multiple Sclerosis. The scores vary from 207 for the highest (Germany) to 46 (Belarus).
EMSP is pleased to launch full results of the MS Barometer 2009.
In 2009, the MS Barometer questionnaire was reviewed according to the feedback received on the first round. In 2009, 29 MS Societies (including for the first time Russia) contributed to the MS Barometer allowing EMSP to get an overview on MS disease management across Europe.
