For more than 20 years, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, has been relentlessly focused on understanding the journey people living with MS face in order to create a meaningful, positive experience for them and the broader MS Community.
We aim to better understand MS and, importantly, enable others to do the same.
We are hyper-focused on building a broader knowledge on: how the disease affects the immune system; how people living with MS and their loved ones are affected by the hurdles MS can throw their way; and how patients and their healthcare teams can clearly and authentically communicate in the short time they have together in the clinic.
We know that behind every MS diagnosis is a real person. And behind every person is a unique story and an individual journey – overcoming numerous challenges and achieving personal triumphs. We want to shine a light on the everyday tales of heroism and personal victories in order to raise awareness of the struggles people face despite the progress made to date.
Therefore, we want to tell the inside story of this disease, allowing ourselves and the broader community to fully understand MS from the ‘inside-out’.
