EMSP is making available its Annual Report for 2012, a year of intense activity and a year of chance for our organisation.
Amongst the most important deliverables we can name the ‘Written Declaration on Tackling Multiple Sclerosis in Europe’ signed by 408 Members of the European Parliament, the successful launch of two pilot projects for an MS Nurse training programme, the appointment of a Youth Representative in the Executive Committee of EMSP and the Under Pressure exhibition organised in the European Parliament for “Awareness Day”.
The European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP) together with its member societies launched, on May 29 - World MS Day 2013, www.underpressureproject.eu, a multimedia website revealing sharp discrepancies in the treatment, employment and empowerment of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) across Europe.
On the 7th of December 2012, the voice of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) was heard from the tribune of the Parliament in Vilnius, during an international conference hosted by the Seimas (Lithuanian Parliament).
The event was attended by 200 participants, including representatives from EMSP, health professionals and also representatives of various organisations and non-governmental organisations from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
