- How can we ensure better access to healthcare regardless of gender, race and sexual orientation?

- How does MS affect different ethnicities in different ways?
- Is there a higher rate of cognitive and visual impairment in MS in the BAME population, leading to social isolation, difficulty walking and a higher risk of falls and fractures? (WHO 2022)
- Is MS prevalence higher in black populations, particularly black women, as compared to white populations? (Albor et al 2017)
- Do sexual and gender minority groups of people with MS experience a difference in access to, or experience of, care? Anderson et al 2021
