Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF)
MSIF was established in 1967 as an international body linking the activities of national multiple sclerosis societies around the world.
MSIF seeks to work in worldwide partnership with member societies and the international scientific community to eliminate multiple sclerosis and its consequences, and to speak out globally on behalf of those affected by multiple sclerosis. MSIF works to achieve this through the following key priorities:
development of new and existing societies;
exchange of information;
