Societal Impact of Pain Thematic Network Project


The SIP partners have continued to work on the supporting document of the Joint Statement on the Societal Impact of Pain.

A new version has been published on the Health Policy Platform under the SIP Thematic Network.

We invite all our partner organisations concerned with pain to join the webinar organised by DG SANTE on the EU Health Policy Platform on the 20 September 2018 and offer their point of view on the work done and bring in their ideas. The Framing paper supporting the call for action as part of the Joint Statement to be presented before the end of the year to the EU Commission is open to changes until the last minute.
