Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system which includes the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. MS cannot be cured but it can be treated.

It is believed that about 1 in 1000 New Zealanders have a diagnosis of MS.

Multiple Sclerosis Society of New Zealand is a reliable online source of information about MS symptoms as well as for news and research updates.
