The Multiple Sclerosis Society of New Zealand
The Multiple Sclerosis Society of New Zealand (Inc) is a non-profit organisation formed to provide on-going support, education and advocacy for people with MS and their support networks. It also aims to educate the general public, employers and health professionals about MS and actively funds key research into the condition.
The Society was formed in 1967 and today there are 18 Regional Societies from Northland to Southland supported through advice, education and materials by the National Office.
MSNZ welcomes PHARMAC’s release of a consultation document on Thursday that proposes Natalizumab (Tysabri)and Fingolimod (Gilenya) as potential new first-line treatments for relapsing, remitting forms of MS.
PHARMAC is seeking feedback on a funding proposal involving five treatments for multiple sclerosis (MS), including these two new treatments. It is also seeking feedback on potential changes to the currently funded treatments Avonex, Betaferon and Copaxone.
