The European Multiple Sclerosis Platform aisbl, based in Belgium

Founded in 1989, the European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP) is the umbrella organisation for 40 Multiple Sclerosis (MS) societies from 35 European countries. EMSP represents their interests at the European level and works to achieve its goals of high quality equitable treatment and support for persons with multiple sclerosis throughout Europe. En route to its ultimate vision of a world without multiple sclerosis, EMSP will work on a three pillar approach to ensure that people with MS have a real voice in determining their own objectives and priorities. The EMSP team is engaged in advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns to influence European decision-makers and EU policy-makers; they gather and provide knowledge and expertise to relevant stakeholders and encourage high quality research and the dissemination of excellent, evidence-based information on MS.
