Together with Dr Lubica Prochazkova - chief doctor of Neurological section for Multiple Sclerosis in Slovakia and involded in the Association - they succeeded in cancelling the age restriction of 45 which prevented MS patients to access DMDs in Slovakia.
There is no age restriction any more in Slovakia for
having Interferons being prescribed.
The Association - which is an
independent association of young people with MS - is running a media campaign
around the access to treatments, underlining EMSP ongoing efforts.
