What is PRiSMS


PRISMS is an initiative run by Oxford Health Policy Forum, a not-for-profit community interest company dedicated to the development and continuing support of initiatives to improve global public health, whenever an unmet medical need exists. Our mission is to co-create a series of programmes dedicated to meet the needs of people with MS from around the globe; to bring together patients, caregivers, and HCPs to mutually benefit from increased communication and learnings. Individual insights in MS care and treatment can bring about global change and improved outcomes for all those living with MS.
