MS global data sharing initiative – how you can help!

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds across the globe, the power of collecting, sharing and analysing data from all around the world means we will be able to get faster and more robust insights to help people with MS and their clinicians make evidence-based decisions on how to manage their condition during the pandemic or in case of a COVID-19 infection.  
We need your help! 
We are calling on everyone in the Australian MS community to answer a brief survey as part of the Australian MS Longitudinal Study (AMSLS), which is part of the MS global data sharing initiative.  
For more information about how the MS global data sharing initiative works, and how the data is used, please visit:
Please complete the survey as soon as possible and share this with anyone you know who lives with MS.
