Swedish Neurological association “Neurologiskt Handikappades Riksforbund” (NHR) launched a new website this year, to coincide with World MS Day. The website has been developed to assist people who have been recently diagnosed with MS by giving them valuable information about the disease and how they can treat it. NHR coupled the launch with the findings of a report which they also carried out this year. The association say that the report, which questionned people in Sweden with MS about issues they face regarding work and employment, found that 1 in 5 people with MS say that they have lost their job due to the condition.
