As president of Pain Alliance Europe (PAE), I welcome you to this website. PAE is an NGO umbrella organization of national associations which are all committed to improving the quality of life of people with chronic pain. Under the tab ‘members’ you can find which associations in which countries are part of PAE.
PAE’s mission is: To improve the quality of life of people living with chronic pain. One of the main objectives is to raise awareness with politicians, healthcare providers, scientist and policymakers about the many people across Europe who suffer with chronic pain. In order to do so we need all the help we can get. Not only from the other stakeholders but also from the patients themselves by sharing information. Because when we are well informed we can achieve so much more.
On this website you find how PAE is organized, its statutes, how it is financed, and what PAE has been doing since its start on November 29th, 2011. You can find out who is on the board, what PAE activities are coming up and also those of the various national organisations.
I do hope you find here the information which you are looking for when it comes to what patients are doing at the European level to improve the quality of life for chronic pain sufferers.
