raising awareness of the relevance of the impact that pain has on our societies, health and economic systems
exchanging information and sharing best-practices across all member states of the European Union
developing and fostering European-wide policy strategies & activities for an improved pain care in Europe (Pain Policy).
The platform provides opportunities for discussion for health care professionals, pain advocacy groups, politicians, healthcare insurance providers, representatives of health authorities, regulators and budget holders.
The scientific framework of the SIP platform is under the responsibility of the European Pain Federation EFIC®. Co-operation partners for SIP are Pain Alliance Europe and Active Citizenship Network.
