Gilenya in Ireland: Yes!

People in Ireland who have multiple sclerosis will finally be able to receive Gilenya from their neurologists! The HSE’s temporary agreement from June 19th 2012 between the Department of Health and the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association also revealed €20 million savings will be reached by the association.

This is absolutely fantastic news! The ongoing media campaign set up by the MS Society of Ireland surely made an impact!

While I have been helping in bringing awareness of the needs to have access to new medication, I myself have been found not suitable for Gilenya treatment. There are MSers with worse symptoms out there than mine, so they deserve to be treated with Gilenya before me. It’s been good being able to help campaign in a selfless way because there are so many people out there struggling to have a good life… I’m so happy that they will finally get what they’ve been hoping for!
