The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Malta – VO/43 – was founded in 1997 and provides a voluntary means to enhance and expand public awareness, individual and family services and rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It primarily offers subsidised physiotherapy to its members with Multiple Sclerosis and group psychotherapy for the whole family. It also seeks new knowledge, circulate and applies it for the benefit of persons with MS. The Society organises meetings for its members – both for MS patients and also their family – by bringing professionals and specialists.

What EVERYONE should know about MS:

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease which affects the central nervous system.
  • MS literally means “scar tissue in multiple areas”.
  • The cause of MS is not known but scientists believe that it is triggered by a combination of factors.
  • MS is not infectious or contagious.
  • MS may occur at any age but it is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40.
  • Most forms of MS are more likely to affect women than men.
  • The symptoms of the disease vary from problems with vision or sensation to mobility or coordination. In some cases MS can cause pain, speech disturbances or emotional impairment. Fatigue or unusual tiredness is also very common.
  • MS is sometimes referred to as a snowflake disease because it manifests itself differently in each individual.
  • As yet there is no known cure for MS; however with current medical treatment, people with this disease live much longer than before.
