In 2022, MS Australia marks its 50th anniversary. The organisation was formed to drive awareness, research, and support for people with multiple sclerosis (MS).
For 50 years, MS Australia has advocated across the health, disability and aged care sectors, responding to the impact of government policies and initiatives and seeking to improve all aspects of the lives of people affected by MS.
We invite you to view a snapshot of our milestones from the last 50 years below.
We work closely with our four MS Member Organisations who provide frontline support and advice to the MS community, run events and fundraise across the country. Our shared vision over the last 50 years and into the future is a world without MS.

MS Australia would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all those who helped MS Australia to become what it is today – a passionate group of people working to ultimately find a cure for MS.
To mark this anniversary MS Australia has selected 50 recipients from those many worthy Australians to be awarded the MS Australia 50 Years President’s Medal. With this medal, we at MS Australia recognise unwavering and passionate dedication, recognising the outstanding, consistent and selfless service and many contributions towards the MS movement in Australia.
