MS Inside Out means understanding patient needs

Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, aims to better understand MS and enable others to do the same.


MS and family planning

MS Inside Out means understanding patient needs. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide and women are twice as likely to be diagnosed as men. MS is also most often diagnosed between the ages of 20-40, a time when many are thinking of having children. As a company we are committed to raising awareness about family planning in multiple sclerosis MS, and to understand and look for solutions to patients` needs in this important time of their life.

We have developed a Family Planning booklet series as resources for people living with MS that are either planning a pregnancy, are currently pregnant or are currently breastfeeding. The three booklets provides readers with medical information on pregnancy and lactation with MS, as well as personal anecdotes from mother with MS, combing the perspectives from both Healthcare professionals and people living with MS.

Initiatives that enhance our understanding of the different perspectives
