The Hong Kong Multiple Sclerosis Society was a charitable organization founded in 2012 under the chairmanship of Dr. Koon-Ho Chan. Other founding members included Dr. Tak-Hong Tsoi, Dr. Winnie Wong and Dr. Ka-Lock Shiu. The aim of the HKMSS was to promote awareness of multiple sclerosis in our community; help patients gain early access to early diagnosis and treatment; alleviate the disease burden on their daily lives; and help patients and their carers live a full life.
The society aspired to encourage knowledge exchange by regularly inviting renowned international experts in the field to give lectures. Over the years, we were honoured to have received talks from many top experts. We have also collaborated with various organizations to host health talks and press conferences in order to arouse the public and government’s awareness to the disease, in particular the needs of MS patients. In the near future, we shall look into publishing articles on behalf of the society, in addition to other academic or community projects that may benefit our patients.
We hope to continue our role in facilitating the understanding and acceptance of MS in our community, and improving the quality of life of MS patients.
Our current council consisted of 10 members, under the chairmanship of Dr. Richard Li.
