World MS Day 2024


World MS Day takes place every year to bring the global MS community together to share stories and raise awareness of the realities of what it’s like to live with multiple sclerosis (MS).

This year’s theme is My MS Diagnosis, with the tagline ‘Navigating MS Together’. The theme emphasises the journey of navigating a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, exploring the obstacles people face while searching for clarity, and underscores the significance of getting the right diagnosis.

This new theme and campaign will highlight global barriers to diagnosing MS, raising awareness by sharing real stories and data.

While World MS Day is officially marked on Thursday 30 May, we have arranged virtual and physical events and activities across Queensland to take place throughout May.

Below we’ve listed some of the many ways for you to get involved and get connected this year!
