There are approximately 1000 MS sufferers in Malaysia. However, only about 400 to 500 are diagnosed suffering from this disease. One of the key problems is because of the poor public awareness of this disease makes them not want to come forward for treatment.
In Europe and in the US, MS Societies have been instrumental in fostering increased awareness of the disease and unite family and friends.
This awareness is exactly what the MS Society of Malaysia wants to achieve to prevent patient suffering in silence, not knowing the facts about MS.
