The Trust is currently funding a feasibility study into the establishment of a national registry of all people with MS in New Zealand. A National Registry is seen as an essential step in assisting further MS Research, equitable allocation of treatment resources, determining MS prevalence and tracking & evaluating the impact of treatment in the New Zealand population.

It will also enable researchers to leverage off global data and share their findings with the wider international MS community.

While the establishment of a national registry is currently our main funding focus, the trust welcomes other applications for MS Research funding for its consideration.
