our core values.

At MSWorld member needs always come first. This is what we do and this is why we exist. By focusing on our members and being responsible to our community, we create meaningful work for ourselves and provide something of lasting value for those living with Multiple Sclerosis. As a result, MSWorld is recognized as a world leader in providing patient support and information related to MS. At MSWorld we honor these core values:


Integrity is at the heart of everything we do. We are honest, ethical and upfront because trust is at the foundation of our relationships with our members, our community, our collaborators and each other.


We know it is critical that we respect everyone at every level of our organization. We champion diversity, embrace individuality and listen carefully when others speak.


We hold ourselves to a very high standard of performance. We prize the teamwork it takes to make MSWorld a reality. We never stop asking ourselves how we can make the member experience better, and every day we find new answers.


We take responsibility for our actions as individuals, as team members, and as an organization. We work together to be the very best we can be.


We are true to ourselves and transparent with our communication among volunteers at MSWorld. A high level of transparency is necessary to build trust between us and strengthen our foundation.


We show kindness every day towards our team members and others. Particularly because we know that each one of us is coping with MS on many levels. In a way, we come first, with members, as we all share a common diagnosis. A little kindness and understanding must replace judgment and impatience. It is a reflection of who we are as individuals and collectively as an organization.

At MSWorld, we strive to grow personally and collectively to create an organization that continues to set a standard of excellence unmatched by any other.
