A quick overview
The only global MS research campaign
Kiss Goodbye to MS is the only global campaign that raises funds for MS research. In 2018 the campaign is live in 15 countries around the world.
From understanding how and why MS does what it does, to finding treatments and (one day) a cure, you are funding the world’s best MS researchers in the search for the breakthroughs we need.
Increasing research funding
Kiss Goodbye to MS is helping to increase the number of countries fundraising for research. In 2017 12 countries took part and raised more than US$1.25m. Now 15 countries and our many supporters are aiming to raise $1.5m to fund research and support people living with MS!
The brightest young researchers
We think it’s essential to encourage the brightest and best young researchers into MS research so every year we award research grants to the best young candidates from around the world.
International research giants
Members of the MS International Federation support most of the biggest names in MS research. This is why our members have contributed to many of the treatments we currently have as well as some of the breakthrough research happening right now!
Unique research collaborations
Through cross-border collaborations like the International Progressive MS Alliance we are linking up world-leading institutions to help them work together to overcome barriers that can’t be tackled alone.
One of the major barriers to treating and curing MS is understanding the causes and course of the disease. The members of the MS International Federation fund some of the most influential basic science which is helping us to understand more about the disease every day.
Preventing MS is the ultimate goal for all of us, and our members are funding incredible work in this field, so one day MS will be a thing of the past.
Every approved treatment that comes to the market improves the quality of life for people living with MS. We will continue to fund research that leads to new treatments so that everyone affected by MS has the life they deserve.
