About The Multiple Sclerosis Society of India (MSSI):

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of India was established in 1985. The society is dedicated to minimizing the effects of Multiple Sclerosis, both on patients and their families, by aiding and assisting them in coping with the disease and meeting the challenges of daily living. The society is also actively involved in raising awareness about the disease.

Since this crippler disease starts in young adulthood and is not a killer, the patient lives a normal span of life but may slowly become more and more disabled.  The whole family of an MS patient gets affected financially, physically and emotionally for many years.  The Society tries to lighten some of this burden by providing various services like home based physiotherapy, counseling for the newly diagnosed patients and their families, organizing Free Medical Camps, Seminars, Workshops and Recreational Programs, medical reimbursements to needy persons, providing aids and equipment like wheelchairs, walkers etc.

MSSI has 8 chapters in India and is affiliated to MS International Federation.
