Multiple Sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disease. It affects over 600 000 people in Europe, but the treatment and support that Multiple Sclerosis sufferers receive varies widely depending on where they live. It is mostly diagnosed between 20 and 30 years of age, frequently at the beginning of a professional career. People suffering from Multiple Sclerosis may require flexibility and specific facilities from the employer given the unpredictable and variable nature of the condition.
